Thanksgiving week 2012, Quotes about Gratitude:
All of us owe some debt of gratitude to others in our lives who have inspired us or pushed us ahead.  Sometimes these are little, almost imperceptible moments.  At other times, these moments are life-changing.

Regardless of the magnitude of each “spark” we experience, our life is the sum total of these moments.  This is where we tie into our discussion from yesterday, about developing a “habit of being grateful“.  Be grateful for the inspirations and prodding you receive from others and take time to do this regularly!  Doing this will help you be mindful of the “little” inspirations in life that you receive, as well as the big ones!
