"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Gratitude day . . .

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
—Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965); theologian, philosopher, physician

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others. ”
—Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965), British statesman, prime minister, author, Nobel Prize winner

“Some people grumble because roses have thorns; I am thankful that the thorns have roses. ”
—Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr (1808-1890);critic, journalist, and novelist

Love, Chatty

My dad had a saying about gratitude and those who never seemed to have any: "Some people wouldn't be happy if you hanged 'em with a new rope."

LOL...just a backwoods saying, but really, it is so tiresome to meet people who have no gratitude! Guess I should be grateful it doesn't happen more!
