What Gratitude Does
Thank your wife, today, for how hard she works.
Thank your son for mowing the lawn.
Thank your husband for letting the dog out before work.
Thank your co-worker for starting the coffee.
Thank God for the gift of today.
Heart-felt gratitude encourages others. It lets them know they are loved, acknowledged, appreciated, even if what they are doing is routine.
Most of all, gratitude expands our hearts in the way of God.
G.K. Chesterton said it best, "the best kind of giving is thanksgiving."
