50 Shades Of Gratitude

For the first time, I shall re-blog one of my own posts. This post appeared one year ago today …but it’s always timely. Enjoy!


Fall arrives in the Northern Hemisphere tomorrow, September 22. I love fall. But, I’m not in a hurry for it to arrive, I will happily wait one more day and enjoy today. That’s because today, September 21, is one of my favorite days. Besides being the last day of summer, it is also World Gratitude Day, which was established globally in 1965 and has been slowly gaining steam.

To commemorate World Gratitude Day, I have compiled my 50 favorite quotes on gratitude and appreciation. Since I painstakingly etched them on a parchment scroll, I thought I should share them. So, I have unfurled the scroll below for all to see. Collectively, they all lead back to the same benefits, but they each have their own subtle nuance or shade. Hence the title, 50 Shades of… oh well, you know what I mean.

This collection is not all-inclusive, of course, so if you have others that you would like to add for all to see, please do jot them down in the comments section below. Then, I and other readers will have something and someone else to be grateful for.

Enjoy World Gratitude Day and thanks for stopping by!  🙂  

So Many Thorns

iF_I_Knew_You

 

If I knew you and you knew me,
If both of us could clearly see.
And with an inner sight divine,
The meaning of your heart and mine.
I’m sure that we would differ less,
And clasp our hands in friendliness.
Our thoughts would pleasantly agree,
If I knew you and you knew me.

If I knew you and you knew me, 
As each one knows his own self, we
Could look each other in the face,
And see therein a truer grace. 
Life has so many hidden woes, 
So many thorns for every rose.
The “why” of things our hearts would see, 
If I knew you and you knew me.
