For today and its blessings,
I owe the world an attitude of gratitude...
Gratitude is a humble emotion.
It expresses itself...
Not for the gifts of this day only,
But for the day itself;
Not for what I believe will be mine in future,
But for the bounty what I've got in the past.
If I can't be
content with what I have received,
Be thankful for what I have escaped.
Because so much has been given to me,
I have no time to ponder over what has been denied.
It isn't what I have in my pocket
That makes me thankful;
But what I have in my heart.
Gratitude will transform my days into satisfaction;
will turn routine jobs into joy;
And will change ordinary opportunities into Blessings.
