The Grammar of Gratitude

To learn the grammar of gratitude, 
we must practice saying thank you for both happy and challenging experiences,
  for people, animals, things, memories, dreams and art.
Count your blessings, praise and give thanks 
for the simple things,
 the everyday, the easily forgotten as well as the 
big and the impressive.

Utter blessings and express appreciation to
 everything and everyone that you encounter. 
 By paying attention and blessing 
we are blessed.

This is the practice of Gratitude that makes 
each moment 
and experience sacred 
and transformative.

Happy Day of Thanksgiving.
