There are so many quotes for gratitude .Please addany you like

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.” — Sarah Ban Breathnach


“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” — Albert Einstei


“If the only prayer you say in your life is thank you, that would suffice.” — Meister Eckhart


“Grace isn’t a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It’s a way to live. ” — Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.” –Sarah Ban Breathnach


“Gratitude should not be just a reaction to getting what you want, but an all-the-time gratitude, the kind where you notice the little things and where you constantly look for the good, even in unpleasant situations. Start bringing gratitude to your experiences, instead of waiting for a positive experience in order to feel grateful.” — Marelisa Fábrega


Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire, If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who think you’re not.”

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Thank you to everyone for being here ,love flowergirl

“If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.”“And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.”“If you woke up this morning with more health than illness… You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day.”“If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 700 million people in the world.”“If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world.”“If your parents are still alive and still married …you are very rare.”“If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you’re unique to all those in doubt and despair…….”Ok, what now? How can I start?If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are

Today I am grateful for creative people. I just finished a novel called Leaving Cheyenne by Larry McMurtry. I don’t real novels all that often, but when I finish one it seems I always say to myself “I enjoyed that, I should read more novels”. So, I’m gonna’ make it a point to read a novel now and again. I just started Robinson Crusoe. Today I’m grateful for the artists of the world.

for the love ,support and happiness I get from my fantastic kids and wonderful friends

be thankful

I’m grateful for the good in the world. I get tears in my eyes often when I watch the news. So many people seem lost. And even in the sea of hatred and confusion we can discern shining examples of beauty and love and what is so great about those examples is how brightly they shine out above all the bad stuff. We often see the best of humanity in some of the worst of situations. We she children hurt and crying or dying and it hurts us deep down and I can’t get my heart or head around that stuff – but, I know that without “seeing” suffering our lives would have no growth or meaning. It is through suffering, our own and witnessing that of others, our own compassion and ability to love grows, hopefully so does our courage – our courage to stand up for ourselves and for others.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
— Gandalf, J.R.R. Tolkien

Yesterday I took flowers to her resting place and saw her headstone for the first time ( it took a while to get her one).A feeling of peace was all around as I read the words we had chosen

“your spirit will always be with us in the whisper of the wind and the early morning dawn”

Today, as always, I am so grateful for my family and my friends. I sometimes ‘step back and look’ in my mind and think “How wonderful they are just the way they are.”

Today I am grateful for my wonderful family.
The good, loving time we had together.
For people who show me kindness and patience and give me smiles.
For feeling better.
For truly believing there are countless wonderful people and things in the world…they are by far in the majority.
For my loving sweet kittycat whose name is Ervin.
For peace and quiet in my apt bldg.
For those wonderful sparks of hope that burst forth at times like shining stars.

Something I discovered in recent years,is that thoughts of gratitude
always help my emotional health.
