value thankfulness in our relationships with our loved ones and we instill the
need (first as a habit in order to cultivate a sense of meaning) for
thankfulness in our children and in those we mentor.
Often times, though, our own prayer lives turn towards wants, needs, “may I”’s and “please”. As we have these moments of quiet, even if the moments are thrust upon us, we want to take the quiet and use it to listen. We want to take these moments to re-center our thoughts on gratefulness and offer thanks to the one who “all good and perfect gifts come from” (James 1:17).
