Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
--- William Arthur Ward
It's easy to feel gratitude. The trick . . . is to express gratitude.
This month, make an extra effort to reach out . . . to let someone know you feel grateful.
- Send a handwritten note.
- Return a favor.
- Listen carefully.
- Offer support.
- Say "thank you." Out loud.
Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.
--- Henry Van Dyke
