The riches of gratitude
A spirituality.com commentary
What's The Connection between a grateful state of mind and happiness? Is gratitude good for your health? Are grateful people more optimistic? Do they acknowledge a higher power for good in their lives? Yes! say a majority of Americans (polled by spirituality.com in September 2003).
In this nationwide sample, a whopping 97 percent feel a significant level of gratitude, with 68 percent calling themselves "extremely grateful."
But there's more to it than feelings. Consistently grateful people, according to the poll, openly show their gratitude on a regular basis with actions that range from verbal, written, or monetary expressions of thanks to giving thanks in private prayer.
