There’s a special bonding moment when you raise a glass and give a toast, followed by that happy clink. Here’s why I think giving thanks and appreciating everyday moments are essential.
To Your Health!
Did you know that folks in the UK will use the word “cheers” as “thank you?” From wedding toasts to praising someone for remarkable achievement, raising a glass with a special someone is a special bonding moment.
I love that part about “cheers” and “thank” can be the same.
Have you ever wanted to become more thankful? More grateful? More appreciative of, well, everything that we take for granted?
Why not give thanks and cheer a little more often?
It also benefits us when we bow our heads to thank God for the meal and the provisions He has provided us.
It’s a moment of pause.
It’s when we remember that it’s not all about us.
Raise a glass and say Cheers!
Toasting isn’t about the alcohol in the glass. We don’t even need alcohol! It’s like the finishing touch to praying over the food. When we raise our glasses, we connect.
Thanks for being here!
Thanks for taking the time to share a meal!
Thanks for being my friend! My husband! My family!
Let’s look at each other in the eyes and say, “I like you.”
I like you.
I Like you.
I LIKE YOU!
So tonight, today, right now… Let’s raise a glass and be thankful for all life’s big and little blessings!
Cheers, my friends.
