100 things #16 consciously giving thanks for what I already have ...

reminds me of some of the things I learned about gratitude when I was first learning to Dance in the Rain.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision. - Melodie Beattie
