In our daily lives, we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but the gratefulness that makes us happy.
Henry David Thoreau
In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.
One man may hit the mark, another blunder; but heed not these distinctions. Only from the alliance of the one, working with and through the other, are great things born.
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
Giving is so often thought of in terms of the things we give, but our greatest giving is of our time, and kindness, and even comfort for those who need it. We look on these gifts as unimportant – until we need them.
Joyce Sequichie Hifler
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Each One Help OneSubmitted by Bobbi
My husband and I, grateful for our own circumstances, met a young woman and her baby son 16 years ago. They had a rented room, but not much support in their lives. We were childless.

I Am Truly Grateful For My WorkSubmitted by Jeanine
I have been a nurse in geriatric and nursing homes for over 25 years. When I meet new people and tell them what I do, they say "I could never do that". Honestly, I can't imagine doing anything else. I am grateful that God saw that I needed my patients, more than they needed me. My patients over the years have...
Broken Heart From A Broken HomeSubmitted by Cindy
When I was 17 years old I was taken away from my father’s abusive home by the state. If I had moved back in with my mother I wouldn’t have been able to finish high school that year (my parents were divorced and lived far apart). One of my good friends asked his parents if they would temporarily adopt me so I...

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.
