A Grateful Heart

Thankfulness is tied to feelings of the heart. Being thankful is a feeling of appreciation toward something or someone. We can be thankful for the simplest to the most complex things of life. We can also be thankful for the people whom we share life with. I saw a phrase once that said thankfulness disrupts complaining.
