When I sow seeds of grumbling, murmuring, complaining, griping, I reap a harvest of negativity.
The more I notice the negative, the more the negatives multiplies…
in myself, people around me, relationships, my circumstances.
When I sow seeds of gratitude, thankfulness, praise, I reap an abundance of things to be grateful for.
The more I notice the things that are lovely, praiseworthy, good…
the more the blessings multiply…
until my cup is full, pressed down, shaken together, running over.
Celebrating a year of gratitude gathering
with thanks to Ann
who led the way.
