10.17.21 Gratitude Pumpkin

“At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer

A few weeks ago, someone sent me an idea they found of making a, “gratitude pumpkin,” for the season. The premise is that each day you put something you’re grateful for on the rind to decorate it. I bought a pumpkin for my classroom, and every day, when the students come into the room, they are able to write one thing they are grateful for. Within a day, I was so blessed to see that my name was on the pumpkin. Isn’t it amazing how one little ounce of gratitude can re-awaken your sense of place?

So how about this … let’s create a virtual pumpkin challenge! Please take a moment to share who or what you are grateful for. Share your moment of gratitude with the person who needs to hear it most. Ask them what they’re grateful for! Imagine the ripple effect! Imagine the spark.

  1. I am grateful for the rich and lavish life I have created for myself and am fully living in mind, body and spirit. There are many on my path who have supported me on my journey to where I am. I send them all love, light and my deepest gratitude.

  2. Absolutely inspired idea! I’m grateful for the young neighbor who has permission to enter our yard to collect his soccer balls. His appearances reminds that children must play and it is a better world when they do!
