A quote on gratitude:

“What do I have that I have not received as gift?
If I have received, why do I act as if I have not? All is gift”
- Anonymous

“Do not look forward to what might happen tomorrow;
The same everlasting Father who cares for you today, will
Take care of you tomorrow, and every day.
Either He will shield you from suffering, or HE will give you
Unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, then and put aside all anxious thoughts
And imaginings.”
- St. Francis de Sales, 1567-1622
