1,000 Gifts

"If anyone would tell you the shortest, surest way to all happiness— he must tell you to make it a rule to yourself to thank and praise God for everything that happens to you. For it is certain that whatever seeming calamity happens to you, if you thank and praise God for it, you turn it into a blessing. Could you therefore work miracles, you could not do more for yourself than by this thankful spirit, for it heals with a word speaking, and turns all that it touches into happiness… it be the noblest sacrifice that the greatest Saint can offer unto God.” -William Law
