Grateful Friday

Postcard from Tacoma Community College

It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing 
that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. 
And because all things have contributed to your advancement, 
you should include all things in your gratitude.

~Wallace D. Wattles
