I wish you a sense of gratitude, thankfulness for all that you've been blessed with in this life, all the things that you have, all the people you know, the food that you eat, the possibilities that you have.

   

I wish you a thankful heart, one that sees the importance of each aspect of your life and that doesn't take the important things for granted, without appreciation for the beauty and the harmony of our lives.  May you always find the reasons for which thankfulness is appropriate, and be able to voice your gratitude to others, to yourself, to your God, for it it only with gratitude that we can open the many doors of life that are available to us, the doors that lay closed to those who live life without gratitude.

   
Most of us live in an era of unprecedented possibilities and potential, and one factor that can help to determine our success is our level of gratitude.  Those who proceed through life without recognizing the blessings that have been bestowed upon them through no effort of their own live empty lives, always wondering why their own efforts do not result in happiness or fulfillment, while those who feel gratitude for the sunsets, the cool breezes, the times spent with friends, the smiles and laughter of children, the kind words of others, the touches of rain and of sun--these are the people who see life as an on-going procession of miracles that we truly are blessed to be able to experience.

Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion.  Hope without
thankfulness is lacking in fine perception.  Faith without thankfulness
lacks strength and fortitude.  Every virtue divorced from thankfulness
is maimed and limps along the spiritual road.

John Henry Jowett
