Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
William Arthur Ward
Joseph Wood Krutch
The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
H. U. Westermayer
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.
Johannes A. Gaertner
He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.
In moments of discouragement, defeat, or even despair, there are always certain things to cling to. Little things usually: remembered laughter, the face of a sleeping child, a tree in the wind-in fact, any reminder of something deeply felt or dearly loved. No man is so poor as not to have many of these small candles. When they are lighted, darkness goes away-and a touch of wonder remains.

"Thank God For Kids!"Submitted by judy
In the song ,"Thank God for Kids" by the Oak Ridge Boys , the lyrics give us all reason to thank God. If we didn't have children to celebrate life , our life would be "empty".Without children, our house would be quiet , but" empty".

I have wanted to tell this story for many years since it occurred when I was 16, and I am now 67. This is the perfect place and I hope the people involved who helped me and my friends so many years ago will see it and know how truly grateful I am to them. I was riding in the back seat of a car when suddenly...

She just gave birth to two bubbly young men, but she is a mother of 5 more little ladies. She is our aunt. She is the cause of what we are today and what we will become in the future that lies in front of us. She is the person we go in times of trouble, bewilderment and our success. The person why we try our...

As a child I saw my mother as anything but a hero, but when I became a parent I found out what a Hero truly is. I never realized that super powers could be wisdom, understanding, and patience when it comes to raising our children. It wasn't until my 21 year old daughter decided that my life style wasn't...

As a foreigner, I am grateful for my College Medger Evers for giving me the opportunity to accomplish something beyond expectation "my degree" and to be the first in my family to make my beloved mother proud.

The college video gets to me every time. My dad unfortunately started struggling with an addiction to drugs in 2008. He started being abusive towards me, more emotionally than physically, in 2010, and when my parents divorced in 2011, he despised me. I believe he blames me for the divorce because I finally broke down and told my mom everything. He says we are both crazy, but the reality is, he is blinded by mind altering drugs. He will no longer answer my phone calls. The last time I went up to his door, to invite him to a church play I would be starring in and a revival I would be singing at, he was shaking, broke out, and was so skinny that when I hugged him I could feel every bone in his spine. I haven't spoken to him since, although I did find out on Facebook that he gave my entire inheritance , a large farm with a house, barn, garage, trailer and multiple fields, to a woman he has only been dating for a couple of years, with no intent of ever marrying. My gratitude falls in the arms of my loving mother who has stand beside me throughout everything that I have been through. Even though no one will ever fill the blank space that my dad left, she tries her hardest to play the role of mother and father. She truly is nuturer and provider in our house. I am also so grateful to have a God that will never forsake me. He has been holding my hand ever since the first day that my dad tried to hit me, and he still hasn't let go. Even with all I have been through, how could I not be grateful?
I absolutely love this one, it makes me cry every time. It shows not only gratitude but also the love between a father and daughter.
