Dear Kristi, this is so beautiful! Thank you! Living gratefully has so profoundly transformed my life, that it is beyond words. Much of the time I feel such a sense of peace and love. To be here on earth and having this human experience, even with all its challenges, is such a gift and a blessing! This site has been so instrumental in helping me to learn to live gratefully. Thank-you from my heart! 💖
May God’s peace be with us all 🕊🌈
I just came back from my walk. I saw a fuzzy caterpillar and watched with fascination as it crawled along the top of the curb and into the grass. I thought of this article and I said silently, “I am so grateful for the ability to see, that I am able to appreciate and be in awe, that I am able to walk and for this beautiful earth to walk upon.” This filled me with such love and joy. Thank-you again for this article! 💖🦋🌈
I take a walk everyday and it is so enjoyable and healing! I do engage in gratitude when I walk, but this article has given me wonderful pointers to help me increase this. It is such a gift and blessing to be able to get out in Nature! Thank-you for sharing this article!
Peace, love and blessings to all 💕🌝🌷
Dear Imuetinyan, THANK-YOU from my heart for sharing your beautiful and inspiring story! It has impacted me profoundly. Oh yes, life is such a precious gift and every moment to be cherished. You are a beautiful example of what Br. David says, “Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you.” I am going to share your story with others. Bless you, dear Imuetinyan. THANK YOU, again! 💖🌈
Thank-you, Eric for the this beautiful essay! When I talk my daily walk and stop and look at the trees, flowers, etc. and watch the changes that occur in each season, it is evident that there is some Higher Power and Perfection doing all this. Just writing this fills me such love, joy and gratitude. Oh, how I have come to love and appreciate life!
I send love, peace and blessings to all 🌈🌻💖
Rose, this is wonderful, thank-you for sharing it! So often I have reflected on how resilient my parents were. They went through so much in their lives and always kept going and were grateful. I am so thankful for all I learned from them by their example. The older I get the more I appreciate and love life! As you said Rose, we discover we are unbreakable.
Peace, love and blessings to all ???
I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to be in prison. My heart goes out to all prisoners. To be able to be grateful in the midst of being in prison, that is true gratitude. Yes, gratefulness Is transformative! Bless all the inmates who partake in Prisoner Express and all those who help bring the program to prisoners.
Peace, love and blessings to all.???
What a beautiful project! It brings me to near tears to think of what humanity has done to our precious Mother Earth and she is so crying out for healing. May we all hear her call and respond with tender care and love. What a blessing to be here on earth at this historic time. After reading this, I can feel such love and gratitude washing through me. Thank-you so much for sharing this! God bless us all as we move through these changing times. ??
Katie, what a beautiful article written from your heart! I have also found that the practice of grateful living has deeply transformed my life. A joy and peace arise that I could not humanly bring about. As you said, ‘it arises from the inside’. ANGL has helped me more than I could ever say. Katie, wishing you all the best in your new endeavor as you continue to be a blessing to everyone whose life you touch. God bless you.
Peace and love, Sheila ?
Wow, so much to reflect on this wonderful article, it is very eye-opening! Thank-you for sharing this! May humanity learn and grow from all that is going on with the COVID-19 epidemic. May we respond in a positive way, so the future generations will say thank-you to us.
Blessings to all ?
What a wonderful project this is and so needed at this time! In honesty, I can be so quick to judge people with differing views from me and this is very helpful to me! In a “Conversations with God” book, God says, “no one does anything inappropriate given their model of the world”. Thank-you for sharing this!
God bless us all.
Thank-you for sharing this, it’s so inspiring! What resonated the most with me was the quote that says, “work on self is inseparable from work in the world. When we change ourselves, our values and actions change as well”. I have found this to be so true in my life. May the world live as one.
Love, peace and blessings to all. ????
Thank-you for this beautiful guided meditation, Rose and Gratefulness Team!!! There is such an overwhelming feeling of love in my heart after doing this guided meditation. It also helped to remove thoughts of judgement about people and allowed true appreciation for them just as they are.
Peace, love and blessings to all ??

I thank God for this wonderful world and this wonderful life. I say thank-you from my heart to The Gratefulness Team and everyone at gratefulness.org.
Peace and love to all ????
Dear Eric, this is so beautiful and touching! Thank-you! This time is very challenging, but I believe it is a blessing to be here on earth at this historic time. May humanity respond to this time in a way that the future generations will say thank-you to us and say “what a wonderful world”. Life is such a precious gift!
I send love and blessings to all ??
Dear Lisa, what an inspirational essay! Thank-you! Learning to be grateful has completely transformed my life. Gratefulness has given me a “new pair of eyes” and how I have come to love life! Your essay made me think of Joel Goldsmith, who said, “Life only becomes beautiful, when the struggle is over”.
Peace, love and blessings to all ???
Kristi, thank-you so much for your kind words! Every since I found ANGL, everyone with this site has been a shining example for me and I am deeply grateful! Thank-you!
Peace, love and blessings to all 🌻🦋
Tom, it was so nice to hear from a fellow walker, thank-you for sharing your reflection. I can tell that your walk brings you the same healing and peace it does to me. Walking and being in nature is food for the mind and spirit. Continue to enjoy your walks Tom and basking in the love.
Peace and blessings to you 🍁🌈🦋🌝
Tom, your lovely reflection brought to mind this quote by Alan Cohen, that was once used on this site as ‘The Word for The Day’: “Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts”.
Blessings to you, Tom?
Thank-you so much for your very kind reply, Jay! I just finished listening to the song, “What a Wonderful World”. Oh, it is a wonderful world! Blessings to you, Jay.?
