About our drink:


2021 Niles Krupnik.
The skillful combining of a century-old tradition with modern production methods has produced an excellent liqueur, best drunk warm in the winter or on the rocks during the summer. Krupnik (pronounced KROOP-neek), is made of natural wild bee's honey gathered in forests, and exotic spices. It has an outstanding honey-sweet taste and spicy bouquet with a strong, warming effect


About our gear:

We continue reading Christmas poetry.

About the Topic:

Hierarchy of gratitude:

God

Our Parents

The person that excels in dignity, from whom general favors proceed

A benefactor from whom we have received particular and private favors



Summa - the natural order requires that he who has received a favor should, by repaying the favor, turn to his benefactor according to the mode of each.[1]

The grateful person sees reality as it is. Everything as gift.

Francis De Sales – Intro to the Devout Life: Of poverty of spirit in the midst of riches.

“There is a difference between having poison and being poisoned”

Steps to growing in gratitude – Catholic Digest

Prayer, prayer, prayer

Surround yourself with people who are grateful for life

Attitudes are contagious





Materialism fuels our ingratitude

Before we make purchases (planned or otherwise) say a prayer

Instead of rewarding children with things, reward them with experiences








Will this gift end up in the trash in a week?




Refusing to forgive is a major obstacle to gratitude

Failure to forgive places burdens on our soul





Worry and Anxiety also lead us away from gratitude

“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7

There is a direct link between screen time and anxiety





Practice custody of our language

Just like custody of the eyes. Grumbling or venting does not help, it is a consummation with our interior feelings. Stop complaining, be happier





Regular confession

Meditate on our Lord’s mercy





Memento Mori

Having Heaven as our context helps us be grateful for everything, especially our trials
