Thanksgiving Holiday

During this week when we celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday it is appropriate to reflect on the meaning of gratitude and appreciation.   As we look up the meaning of the two words we often find that they are exchangeable.  I found this beautiful movie called

Words of Gratitude:

With a heart full of gratitude we find ourselves more appreciative of others.  Appreciation is the greatest compliment we give others because it literally increases their value.  I like to close this week’s blog with a quote which has touched me deeply:

“To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.”
Johannes A. Gaertner (German-American Poet and Art Historian - 1912-1996)
