If you are not a grateful person, then you will never be great.Tweet
If you do not appreciate the people in your life, then you cannot receive their amazing value — only their cost.
If you do not say, “Thank you” when you don’t get what you want but what you need, then you won’t know true joy if you do get what you want.
Giving thanks is easy when you are surrounded by a delicious feast and a happy family. But how easy is it to be thankful if you are sadly without home, without family, or without feasting? The awesome, powerful thanksgiving that transcends the 4th Thursday of November is experienced by those who do not lack gratitude even when life is hard. For these are the people who recognize life itself as an eternal gift.
The life of your soul is not a gift that was thoughtlessly or cheaply purchased.
It is given by the Giver with pure love…
Live your Thank You by loving. And let your unconditional loving be your joy. May God help me as I strive to fully live with gratitude…

Although crippled by disease, I am fully alive in love. I write about the profound wonder and terrible beauty of life while living with physical disability and severe dependency. Unafraid to ask life's big questions, I was briefly an atheist and considered other religions before finding, in God's choice to intimately share our humanity, what it truly means to be fully human. A revert to the Catholic Faith, I blog weekly and have written a book called It's Good to Be Here.
