Gratitude & Acorn Squash Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Today I’m sharing my thoughts on gratitude, with a delicious Acorn Squash Shepherd’s Pie Recipe, a potluck dish or great weeknight meal.
Sometimes it seems we only talk about “gratitude” in the month of November, when in reality being “thankful” should impact every area of our daily lives.
For most of us, we’d rather get out of difficulties than be thankful for them–we all have hurts, losses, failures, hard times–but we can experience a change of heart and have actual JOY in our lives when we start giving thanks …. So beautiful, so real.
I love this time of year!
We learn to give thanks when we experience the bounty, but we also give thanks in the shadow of great loss. We’ve all been there.
Even in those times, I’ve found that being grateful not only helps my attitude, it gives me motivation and renews my passion. It helps me focus UPWARD and not inward. :)
I also love this recipe I’m sharing today, because we used up the last of the acorn squash from our garden. It feels to good to be eating what we’ve grown, even in our humble little garden beds (on a city lot).
This year I’m grateful that there was not only plenty to enjoy in our home, but also much to give away to others.
Do you think gratitude is something to be practiced, or do you think it naturally comes to us all?
