The Secret of Saying Thanks by Douglas Wood

This is a little exert from one of the books that Amelia picked out at the Library this weekend. It is a beautiful book about appreciating everything in nature and at home that surrounds you every day.

This is from the last two pages.

The heart that gives thanks is a happy one,
for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time.
The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for.
And the more we find to be thankful for, the happier we become.
We don't give thanks because we're happy.
We are happy because we give thanks.
