Gratitude Makes Sense

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

~ Melody Beattie

Gratitude makes sense to me. It helps me through the chaotic days and sleepless nights. It comforts me, calms me, and reminds me that all will be well. Gratitude points out the many blessings in life, like bike rides, good books, friendships, shadows, an abundance of food, a warm home, a loyal dog, quiet mornings, hugs from my children, and l.o.v.e.

What are the small blessings you are grateful for?

  1. Lovely, Mama W.

    I am grateful when the sun melts upon my face. When the cat purrs. When my sister comes to me in a dream.
