Both Sides of Gratitude

There are two sides to gratitude. Gratitude is generally thought of as a kind of response after the fact, as it were, something like a reflex action to good. You do me a service, and I react with thanks or with some deed born of such thanks. This side to gratitude gilds the fabric of all genuine human relationships.

But the presence of gratitude as spiritual power is thus only partially realized. Turn the coin over. The other side to gratitude is found in thanks felt and given before the fact.
