"Cah, Happy Birthday"
When we are young we count the months.
When we are youths we add the years.
When we are middle aged we drop the years.
When we reach old age we are proud of our years.
Eventually we forget the years and just have fun when it's our birthday.
Have fun on your birthday whatever your age may be."
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates vision for tomorrow.
