1. In the Wall Street Journal today, the article Thank You. No, Thank You: Grateful People are Happier, Healthier Long After the Leftovers Are Gobbled Up.
2. A book I just bought, On Gratitude, in which 42 celebs (mostly pretty thoughtful ones) share what they are most thankful for.
I like the opening quotation from actor Kristen Bell: "I'm grateful that my mother knew what to do with a tiny tomboy who wanted everyone to call her Smurfette when she was three years old."
Other contributors include Dolly Parton, , Samuel Jackson, Kurt Vonnegut, and Alicia Keyes.
