J0439382 Today marks the 12th and final day of the "Twelve Days of Gratitude" Challenge.  I am more convinced than ever that gratitude is one of the most underutilized treasures that sits within us … and that a pattern of continuous gratitude has the potential to change how we see things.

Most importantly, on this 12th day of the challenge I discovered that a series of gratitude leaves you defenseless from the urge to be generous.  They simply go hand-in-hand.  My final card today was filled with gratitude … but included a dose of generosity.  Not because I wanted to … but because I needed to!

So today concludes the formal "Twelve Days of Gratitude" challenge, but hopefully sparks a desire of gratitude that has no conclusion.

And with that … let the Twelve Days of Christmas ring in!
