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. Gratitude makes things right." - Melody Beattie

Then a man pours outward, a torrent of him, and yet he is not diminished." - John Steinbeck
