Showing appreciation does not merely mean that we have everything we need but we gratefully value what we have.
We do not need to have enough before we can show appreciation.
Our attitude towards what we have and what we want determines our level of gratitude.
When we value what we want more than what we have, we will be blind to our blessing and heighten our awareness of what we lack and eventually make us ungrateful.
May you always value who you are and what you have in order to be grateful to God and others.
Fr. Michael Amo Gyau
