Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
~William Arthur Ward, American inspirational writer
When we start to believe how powerful words can be, we are reminded to use them wisely. With a single sentence, we have the ability to build people up or tear them down. With a single thought shared in writing or in person, we have the power to heal a relationship or destroy it. With a single verbal expression of gratitude, we have the opportunity to express to another how important he is or miss that chance to do so. Yes, words can bring about great peace. Words can create a bond filled with love and laughter. Wonderful words that delight and bring love to any situation can be the magical ingredient that awakens enthusiasm and excitement in our world. Having read many good books, we all know how it feels to experience the majesty of a well-written piece of work. Furthermore, we all know the extent to which powerful words can change the world. If we feel gratitude and love, we must make sure we express those sentiments with uplifting and positive words. We can open together the gift that comes from our heart. We must be clear with the goodness we wish to share as we take out our magical words or pen, say abracadabra, declare our appreciation with joy and admiration, and then witness the smiles that remain as we unwrap this life together.
