Magic of Gratitude
Gratitude means being thankful to all those who help you. It is the sweetness of your personality which uplifts you. You owe a sense of gratefulness for all those who have given you something valuable in life. A prayer is also an act of thankfulness to God for all His bounties. You should be greatly obliged to your parents who have given you birth and brought you up with a lot of hardship and pain. You must be thankful to Nature which gives you all the essentials of life free of cost. You owe a deep sense of indebtedness to Mother Earth which sustains and supports you. You cannot repay the debt of the teacher who has showered the blessings of knowledge and wisdom on you. You must be grateful to your wife who is a constant source of care, comfort and companionship. Whosoever has provided you a little moment of joy and happiness in your life deserves your appreciation. It is well said “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where the winds of forgiveness can erase it. But when someone does good for us, we must engrave it on stone so that no wind can ever erase it.”
If you have this attitude of thankfulness in your personality, you will befriend the whole world. A heart felt thank you with a warm smile is like an icing on the cake. It is magical in its effect and appeal. It is the sweetest and purest expression of your soul, the fairest and loveliest blossom of your heart and the choicest and finest fragrance of your existence.
