If you think about our attitude as sons and daughters, even of the Lord, how often do we say thank you? We are great at asking for stuff, even demanding stuff, as if it were a right, an obligation for all we ask for to be given and we are great at complaining. How often do we give thanks for what we do have, for what we are blessed with? I say this even for myself. It is so easy to get caught up in the chaos of life etc… that we never stop to say thanks for what is in my life, the good things, even in the midst of pain and chaos, of having to let go of people etc… in life. Even for example in the midst of a divorce, for example, if we could stop to say thank you and recognize any good, it might not end up being nasty or destructive. Thanks, saying it and acknowledging the good can be very powerful.
