Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. -William Arthur Ward
Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. -Aldous Huxley
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. -Thornton Wilder
Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart. -Seneca
O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
We can lift ourselves and others as well when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues. -Thomas S. Monson
Take time this weekend to be grateful for all of your blessings and the people in your life and remember those who helped shape who you are! You'll see what what you have far outweighs what you have not.
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
