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.

The root of joy is gratefulness...It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.

I am grateful that my friend Scott will be picking up his one year chip tomorrow. He has worked the steps and found peace in his life.
