Gratefulness is like . . .
Gratitude is like a lifeboat saving us from drowning.
Gratefulness is comparable to collecting with a magnet the invisible iron filings in the water.
Gratitude is a thirst-quenching glass of water after a thirsty hot summer day.
Gratitude is the simple enjoyment of a candlelight in a dark room, in the middle of the night.
Gratefulness is allowing oneself to breathe fresh air when taking a break from the desk.
Gratitude is taking a quiet time to open the lunch bag, after a busy and overwhelming morning at work.
It’s the feeling, when picking up the phone to call and enjoy a conversation with a good friend we didn’t speak with in a while.
It’s the simple, honest smile the father expressed despite the tiredness of the long day at the assembly line.
Gratitude is just sitting down for a few minutes in the middle of a long trek in autumn…
