Showing gratitude with words is precious but showing it through your actions is true gold.
We all appreciate our family and/or friends who have been there for us when we needed them. Memories of those times warms my heart. Those are the moments where you feel loved. We need to remember that saying thank you to these dear ones is sweet and pleasing to their hearts and ears. Returning the favour as some would call it, would be a blessing. My hope is that it would be like a gentle sweet soaking in the arms of God.
I am finding more and more that the business and busyness of this world is blinding us to the needs of others. May God give us eyes to see. Can we be the one that shows up in a moment of need with the purpose of being that support and breath of kindness without want of any reward? Let our compensation be the smile and/or relief that is exhibited.
We need to prioritize — remembering to put what matters first — like our family and friends. The weekend is upon us, most of us are off but even if we are not, let’s all do one thing to say we are grateful. A simple thank you will do.This is the miracle of gratitude. I believe that if you make a difference in this world you will find that you make a world of difference.
William A. Ward said it best with these words; “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
