And here is the secret, if you have 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 remember to give thanks.
