Gratitude Unlocks the Fullness of Life

Gratitude 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. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

I told my son once that gratitude is a kind of joy, and joy is one of my favorite feelings! When I think of all the times (like every minute of every day) that I robbed myself of a perfectly reasonable source of joy! Sheesh!
