The feeling of thankfulness is quite different from all other emotions. Gratefulness is a complex and powerful emotion that is inherently connected with the condition of faith. The word grateful comes from the latin root gratus, which is also the root word of gratis and grace.
To be thankful requires an acknowledgement of two important aspects of our lives; 1) that we have something for which to be thankful and 2) that we have someone or something to which to be thankful. We cannot have one without the other for they are indivisibly linked.
As we take stock of our good fortune and many blessings, we find that the most impressive wonders of life seem far from our conscious control… the beauty of a fall sunset, the majesty of a mountain vista at dawn, the radiant warmth of the sun on a clear, cool morn, the awesome site of a rainbow.
These simple, yet amazing phenomena bless all those who take the time to notice and appreciate them. More personally, if we review most impressive blessings of our lives, virtually all of them seem to have been beyond our control… perhaps gratis or grace inspired.
