Thankfulness is to be grateful for what you have. It is an attitude of gratitude for learning, loving, and being. It is also being grateful for the little things which happen around you and within you every day. It is an openness and willingness to receive each of Godís bounties. To be thankful is to have a sense of wonder about the beauty of this world and to welcome all of life as a gift. Thankfulness is a path to contentment.
