Gratitude means to recognize the good in your life, be thankful for whatever you have, some people may not even have one of those things you consider precious to you (love, family, friends etc). Each day give thanks for the gift of life. You are blessed.
Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.
Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.
Fred De Witt Van Amburgh
Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.
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.
Alfred North Whitehead
No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.
So many people have touched my heart and made an impact on my world. I’m thankful for every lesson and learning experience.
If you suffer, thank God! It is a sure sign that you are alive.
Be thankful for everything that happens in your life; it’s all an experience.
Be thankful for problems. If they were less difficult, someone with less ability might have your job.
There will always be people in your life who treat you wrong. Be sure to thank them for making you strong.
Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
