Here is the definition of Gratitude in the Online dictionary

grat·i·tude
noun 
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
  1. synonyms: gratefulness, thankfulness, thanks, appreciation,

This simple definition just says it all:

Readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness

Such a powerful statement indeed!

In the words of Tiare Smith:  So simple, yet so mighty. It becomes mightier as we practice it in our lives. Growing it in a group makes it all the stronger.   This journal will help to reinforce it and give us a great reference that keeps us grounded.  Just imagine after one month how your attitude, those around you and your life will change.  Change your heart. Change your mind. Change your life. A month of gratitude. A month of miracles….again!  Thank you Tiare! I couldn’t have said it any better!
