It is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.

―Brother David Steindl-Rast

Description: Gratitude may seem easy to experience when we receive a gift that we wanted or feel a desire has been granted in the way our mind wanted it to be.  But the true Heart opens to life in all its aspects and responds with gratitude to the gift of the moment.  Both pleasurable moments and challenging ones are expressions of grace, if we are open to seeing deeply.  Each day life delivers countless, remarkable free gifts.

Are we empty enough to receive life’s fullness? Can we practice letting go of what we are holding onto so that we can receive the endless flow of life’s gifts? Ultimately, we may discover that the giver and the receiver are the same.
