  3. "For here is the secret, if you've not already guessed it...The heart that gives thanks is a happy one, for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time. The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for. And the more we find to be thankful for, the happier we become.

    We don't give thanks because we're happy, We are happy because we give thanks."

    This is going on my bulleting board. Beautiful and worth remembering!! :-) Tee

  5. I keep thinking about your post because I have had the kind of day where brothers are hitting other brothers in the head with toy guns while their mommy tries to talk on the phone to the phone company.
    Yes, your post is timely.

  6. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog, and I especially loved this post. The main reason that I enjoy writing is that it allows me to tangibly process my thoughts. As I tap out my heart on the keyboard, it frequently amazes me how gratitude brings things back around full circle. Seeing the beauty completes the story, and thanks is the thread that ties all the pieces together into a coherent whole. Thank you for putting words to this truth!

  9. Ooo, I really liked this one. I am SO thankful, but don't act like it most of the time. If I complain about not being happy, it appears that it is my own fault for not focusing on what I am thankful for. Thank YOU Shannan, I am thankful for YOU and your words, they make me happy :)
