Modeling Gratitude

We had a con­ver­sa­tion tonight at sup­per that has left me won­der­ing how I can do a bet­ter job mod­el­ing grat­i­tude and thank­ful­ness to my chil­dren.  I know that they are 6, 4, and 1.  They are pret­ty young, and it’s nor­mal for them to think a lot about them­selves and a lit­tle about oth­ers.  I just want to make sure that as they grow, I’m able to help them make the tran­si­tion from being self-focused to includ­ing oth­ers in their focus, too.

I’m not quite sure how to do that or where to start though.
