MoCo Mojo: Being Thankful in These 500 Square Miles

"Gratitude is the sign of noble souls" - Aesop.


A few years ago, I started a "gratitude journal" as a way of turning my many complaints on their head. Finding what to be grateful for among all that happens each day can be a challenge at first, but it's an exercise in thoughtful awareness of the good things in life.

Below are some stories that might help in applying that philosophy toward Montgomery County during the Thanksgiving season. Who says there's no positive news? Just click and think thankful thoughts:

I'm really grateful for all the amazing holiday events going on in our county: http://chevychase.patch.com/articles/2012-holiday-events-guide-a614970b. I've taken my kids to almost all of these over the years, and they hold wonderful memories.
