How to write a good gratitude post

  1. Be specific about an event in your day that involves a person, rather than that person in the abstract, e.g. I am grateful that my son told me he loved me before he told me he missed me without a baby inside.
  2. Use descriptive, evocative language to paint a picture with your words to transport your audience to the event, e.g. I am grateful for the intense rains that have created depth and clarity in my creek; the blue sky reflections and the smell of saturated tree roots.
  3. Use conflict, tension or surprise to tell a brief story, e.g. I am grateful that the meeting I almost missed due to a 1.5hr traffic snarl this morning was delayed because the instigator was delayed by the same traffic jam.
