Living with an "attitude of gratitude" transforms our perspective on life. It shapes how we respond to life's struggles and how we relate to both people and God. If you're grateful, your life shows it in numerous ways. You're positive, thinking the best of others. You're kind to people, especially those around you who are hurting, too. When you choose to thank God and be grateful, your heart is set free from bitterness, anger, complaint and criticism. I love to be around grateful people. It's so refreshing to be around persons who are thankful to God for life, their job, their family. A grateful attitude is contagious. It can transform an office, a staff, a classroom, a church — and a family from focusing on what they don't have, to all that they do have!
