I guess it sounds strange to call gratitude a gift, but I think we are not by nature grateful people, and so when awareness comes to us, it comes as a gift. And gratitude is also a gift in the reverse direction, in that it is something we offer to others. And I am finding that the more I strive to live with an intentionally grateful heart (no easy task), the more I’m away of the many other gifts that come my way each day.
Have a blessed day.
