It’s time for Thanksgiving, so bring on the 30 Days of thankful posts! I will be giving thanks to those who I am thankful for, rather than telling the internet what I am thankful for.

Don’t get me wrong; posting or bearing testimony about what your are thankful for are all well and good. (Just make sure that during your “thank-a-mony” you also bear testimony of Jesus Christ while you’re up there) What would be better is to contact the actual person you are thankful to and giving thanks for what they have done. What would be best, though, is it to show your thanks as well.
I have been trying to be more thankful to others and let them know I appreciate them for something they have done. As I have been giving thanks here and there, it has felt really good. It puts a smile on the other person’s face and brightens up my day as well.

I also want to show my gratitude to my Savior, Jesus Christ, for all he has done for me. In his 2010 address, “The Divine Gift of Gratitude,” President Thomas S. Monson said, “Let us follow Him. Let us emulate His example. Let us obey His words. By so doing, we give to Him the divine gift of gratitude.”
To help me be more dedicated to my effort, I won’t be posting about what I am thankful for. Instead, I will be giving thanks to others and I will be serving in ways that show God how grateful I am for His blessings. Then I’ll be sharing my experiences. So make sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter where I’ll be using the hashtags #GivingThanks and #30Days.

Who is someone that you are thankful for and how do they know you are thankful?
