If you are not a grateful person, then you will never be great.
If you do not appreciate the people in your life, then you cannot receive their amazing value – only their cost.
If you do not say “Thank you” when you didn’t get what you wanted, but, rather, what you needed, then you won’t know true joy if you do get what you want.
Giving thanks is easy when you are surrounded by a delicious feast and a happy family. But, how easy is it to be thankful if you are sadly without home, without family, or without feasting? The awesome, powerful thanksgiving that transcends the 4th Thursday of November is experienced by those who do not lack gratitude even when life is hard. For these are the people who recognize life itself as an eternal gift.
The life of your soul is not a gift that was thoughtlessly or cheaply purchased.
It is given by the Giver with pure love…
Live your Thank You by loving – and let your unconditional loving be your joy. May God help me as I strive to fully live with gratitude…

I don't call myself a poet — but the beating of my heart is poetry. I don't call myself a theologian — but the light of my mind seeks the Divine. Who I am is a Child of God, a Divine Creation, a person devoted to being fully human, fully alive.
