This isn't as much a book about giving thanks as it is about living thankfully. Not the words of thanks which are cheap and usually insincere, but the attitudes and the actions, the thoughts and the behaviors, the intentions and the perceptions. This type of gratitude is what helps us to determine whether we look and live on the bright side of every encounter in life.
Through the early morning traffic, the spilt milk and the frequent coffee runs, to the annoying co-workers and the frustrating workload, to the aching head and tired feet dragging through dinner, through homework, to bed at the end of the day, this book is about embracing all those parts of life that we mostly endure when we could really enjoy.
THANKS and YES is a daily call for us to stop rushing through life and start appreciating life, embracing situations as lessons or blessings, and saying yes to every God-sent opportunity.
