When Moms Teach Us about Gratitude

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with some instant inspiration for you from Chicken Soup for the Soul. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite topics, and that is how much we learn from our mothers. Often they help us understand how to count our blessings, which sets us up for much better lives because you really do need to know how to use the power of gratitude if you want to be happy. I’m sharing two stories with you today in which girls learned a lot about gratitude from their moms, including at that the time of year when that is sometimes most relevant, Christmastime. Both these stories are from our new book Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Moms.

Start your days with inspiration and motivation from the best of Chicken Soup for the Soul and editor-in-chief Amy Newmark. There's nothing like learning from the personal, revealing stories of other people. Amy shares her favorite stories and the wisdom, advice, and easy-to-implement tips that thousands of people have shared in 25 + years of Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Tips and advice on Mondays and Wednesdays, and interviews with fascinating writers and influencers on Friend Fridays. It’s Chicken Soup for the Soul to go!
