G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “here ends another day, during which I have had eyes, ears, hands and the great world around me. Tomorrow begins another day. Why am I allowed two?” The shortest way to happiness that I know is gratitude, counting your blessings.
We ought not ask ourselves if we have more or less to be thankful for. It’s the same year in, year out, from beginning to end: we’re meant to be thankful for life, marked by every kind of human experience, and devised for gratitude to the One who created us.
