Inspiration



Let us be grateful to people who make us happy: They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Marcel Proust

I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer. -G.E. Lessing

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.

- Celia Thaxter

1 Samuel 16:7

Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

I woke up this morning thinking about how much gratitude moves a person to a new level. If we are grateful for the small ordinary acts we perform everyday it brings joy to our lives like we could never believe. I am happy I can walk and talk and move. I am happy to be alive.

I know that there are a million and a half things to worry about. But today I will be grateful.

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
