I believe that gratitude is magical.
“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” ~ John Milton
Gratitude, expressed, is like adding a small bit of extra sunlight into someone’s day. We all want to be appreciated. Just being thankful for someone or something is a wonderful start, but what if instead we each practiced saying “thank you” more often?
What if we made expressing our gratitude for people a bigger priority than expressing our complaints or disapproval?
