“Gratitude begins in our hearts and then dovetails into behavior.
It almost always makes you willing to be of service, which is where the joy resides.
It means that you are willing to stop being such a jerk.
When you are aware of all that has been given to you, in your lifetime and the past few days, it is hard not to be humbled, and pleased to give back.”
-- Anne Lamott, "Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers"
