Gratitude is such a miracle that it erodes all kind of negativity
"Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude."
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
"Gratitude is a sign of maturity...Where there is appreciation: there is also courtesy and concern for the rights and property of others."
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude.
