Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. (William Arthur Ward, inspirational writer)

Some days seem to drag on in a dreary fashion—whether we’re suffering from inclement weather or a boring task. How can we turn such days into a more pleasant experience? Ward suggests developing an attitude of gratitude. It’s amazing what a thankful spirit can do for your disposition. Try it; find someone to thank and see how both of you are uplifted.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
