“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
It is Thanksgiving week here in the USA and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
Thanks a lot for being readers and supporters of LYG.
Thank you for sharing my posts on social media and thank you for commenting on the blog.
Thank you for all your support…it means a lot for me!!
Today’s post contains great quotes on gratitude and appreciation. I hope that this post is a reminder and an inspiration for us to be grateful and appreciative not just for this time of the year but for the entire year.
May we all feel deep and heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for the good in our lives.
Even though, there may be challenges and setbacks, may we still be able to recognize the threads of hope and light in our life.
Although, we may not feel grateful at times, may we see beyond that and change our perspective towards one of thankfulness.
May we always remember and thank people and things in our life that serve us unconditionally and make our lives a little more easy.
May we be a beacon of light and pass the attitude of gratitude forward and be an example of thankfulness and appreciation.
