What a lovely poem I came across about the importance of gratitude:
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.
It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into
perfect timing and mistakes into important events.
It can turn an existence into a real life, and disconnected situations
into important and beneficial lessons.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
