What you truly acknowledge truly is yours. Invite your heart to be grateful and your thank yous will be heard even when you don't use words.
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
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
Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
Money matters, but less than we think and not in the way we think. Family is important. So are friends. Envy is toxic. So is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude.
W. T. Purkiser
You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.

Personal Stories About ‘Gratitude’
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...

I love it at night. It's peaceful. And when it cools down I sometimes do some ironing. I don't really care for it. I work full time and too busy for most housework. I remember the old woman who taught me to iron. I was about 15 and somehow got a live-in job taking care of a woman who had been an able-bodied,...

I am grateful that people seem to be turning towards concepts like this - a public request for values - in a world that also seems full of hatred & irresponsible greed. I am grateful for people, hopefully in greatly increasing numbers, who stand up & say "No More!" to vitriol & incendiary hate speech & the powers...

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.
