Gratitude Is More Than Just A Word

Last week a young lady stop me and ask ” When can we say that gratitude is enough” with a big smile on my face I told her, gratitude is part of life. I narrated a little story to her about a child who received a Christmas gift from the father and keep thanking the father each time the father return from work. it was so funny that the father was move to do more for the Child.

Both the father and the Child never run short of smiles, it becomes their best costume every day, every time.

We live in a World that has lost taste for so many things, true love is lacking, injustice, racism and insecurity is everywhere, but despite all this, we still have some good people out there. People who have contributed so much to add values to our lives and put smiles on our face. People who have denied themselves of so many thing just to make us happy. People who risk their lives everyday just to make sure that we are secure.

We will not be happy, if we look back some years from today and realize that we fail to recognize and appreciate people who really meant well for us despite everything. For instance, most people like celebrating people when they are dead, they don’t mind borrowing money to give the departed a befitting burial.

Gratitude is not just a Word, it is part of life, take time today and thank everyone who has contributed one way or another to your success.

A thank you message can heal thousands of wounds. A visit, call and gift can change a life.

Thank God and Thank everyone in your life
