These days things can feel amazingly bleak: almost no one's hiring, foreclosures a plenty, horrific crimes locally, the Browns disintegrating. But let's put all that aside, for a moment. Thanksgiving is almost here and there is a lot to be thankful for, starting with this beautiful autumn. On the next Sound of ideas, a conversation on gratitude - why it's good for you, how to get it when it’s really hard to find and how to teach it to your children. Join Dan Moulthrop, Monday morning at 9 on 90.3.

Sounds terrific Dan. Would love to hear some discussion about gratitude in children. Meanwhile looking for the podcast with Andrew Watterson...later
I am very thankful for the group of friends I now have who are not judgemental and supportive of me. This group of artists has opened up a world
of comfort and kindness.
All this to a man that has lost jobs and fights for economic survival that showed up one day.
I love the fact I can still exercise and spend time with my two teenagers. And I still have an opportunity to coach people sports.
I hope this doesn’t spoil the party - please consider discussing the following: on one hand practising gratitude may make most of us happier, but on the other hand progress in culture and civilization often seems to be associated with those of us who are chronically dissatified or downright tortured souls who may be little inclined to ever be grateful…
Listening to the show this morning reminded me that I really am grateful to have a football team to root for, no matter how bad they are. I’m grateful for the Browns. There I said it.
