I am amazed by the love that comes through so clearly on every page. This book serves as a beautiful reminder of all there is to be grateful for. Hillis has a very special way with his words and I very much relate to him. Thankful to have come across this book.

The only thing I don’t like about this book is that there isn’t a Volume 2 yet. So inspiring. I look at my life so different after reading this book. Every day I am thankful for something that I have in my life. – Kathy Heinrich
Hillis, Thank you. This is very nice and very thoughtful. The heart of a Poet. – Carol Garnett
Your poem is like a healing elixir just right for this moment in time! – Christine Shinkwin
Awaken With Gratitude by Hillis Pugh is a very nice read. It leads you through a collection of true-to-life moments, personal perspectives and a series of internal commentary. It is endearing as it presents several categories of which we can show gratitude for. If you are looking for a book to feed your soul and give you inspiration, I would recommend this one. My favorite passage from Awaken With Gratitude is “Every day I am grateful for something.” I think that’s a great summation of how this book will rest on your heart.

The author shares a journal of spiritual insight and revelation with readers. It reads like a kind of “notes to oneself” while on the road of the spiritual journey. The theme of some of these notes are thankfulness, hope, gratitude, creating, healing, oneness, acceptance, and numerous others.
Hillis shares a wide range of things to be grateful and thankful for, many I hadn’t thought of before. For instance, he shares, “As time goes on we tend to forget about our ancestors and elders who put forth the work to bring us where we are today.”
These are raw insights, sometimes simple and straightforward, and sometimes complex and poetic, that can be used as a daily reader for inspiration and contemplation. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it.
