Do you have a thankful heart?

Have you ever noticed that some people seem to be so blessed regardless of their circumstances?

The unthankful heart… discovers no mercies;
but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and,
as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find,
in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
Henry Ward Beecher

Isn’t this a great quote?


One other thing I’ve noticed…those with a thankful heart are good at blessing others.

Somehow I missed it!  November 13 was World Kindness Day.

We don’t need an official day to extend kindness and bless others.

Right where you are….

    Lovely quote and photo. You really DO those well.
    I’m not so sure I’m one of those who exudes gratitude/thankfulness. I like to whine too much…LOL But I do think that thankfulness helps me have a broader perspective when ‘stuff’ happens. I mean, if we’re only looking at one bit of the film, how can we really ‘rate it’? I guess I think I need the perspective of the WHOLE picture, know what I mean?
    I AM a graced woman…and horribly thankful for the gifts I’ve been graced with.
    And HA. I had World Kindness Day marked on my calendar! 😉 We had a bit of a ‘contest’ on random acts of kindness at the worksite–wayyyyyyyyy fun!
    Thinkin’ we need to do that one again!

    • Diane says

      Well of course you would know about World Kindness Day and would have organized a ‘contest’ to boot. 🙂 This is your kind of day…hands down!!! Good on you!!! I’m a little bit envious of you and the way you do your random acts, etc.
      It’s a good thing you’re a whiner! LOL!
