the quality or feeling of being grateful
...... that's it!....... the entire definition of this enormous force for good.
What a lesson that is in and of itself.... that the things, ideas and actions that are the most profound and effective needn't be weighed down by a torrent of words or dogma. The definition is simple, as is its explanation, yet its life-transforming effects can hardly be described.
I am grateful for everything and everyone this year has brought me and taken from me. A year ago I could not have imagined much of what life now holds and the promise 2012 offers.
