'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 is the result --
of a certain course of actions
that have changed one's attitude...
to Gratitude.

Gratitude: grateful attitude.

How does it work?

By removing "that which separates the two" --- the Its becomes "One."

Gratitude: grateful attitude.

Gratitude: gratitude.

The two have become One by removing that which separated them.

And, this has produced a changed at-i-tude.

At = a place or position.
I = I, me, mine, myself.
tude = thoughts, views.

If I can change a place or position --
that I am holding on to (the fixed angle or degree) --
in regards to my thoughts and views --

My perception will change.

It's been two years since I originally posted this list of quotes, but I'm adding another to the list.

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.â€

I was going to say thank you for taking the time to post those...

But, now... I feel guilty. :oops: :oops:

I think I used all 86,000 seconds yesterday and didn't tell God thank you, once. I better get some sleep.

Thank you God! I appreciate you! And, all that you do!
