A Little Gratitude

I was reading Melisa Nielsen’s blog at http://waldorfjourney.typepad.com/ and found this quote .I liked it so much I wanted to share it. It ‘s so easy to get swept up in all the negativity that surrounds us daily. It’s time to start sharing the positive.

“This universal mood of gratitude is the basis for a truly religious attitude…Love, born out of experience of gratitude during the first period of the child’s life, is the love of God. One should realize that, just as one has to dig the roots of a plant into the soil in order to receive its blossom later, so one has to plant gratitude into the soul of the child, because it is the root of the love of God.  The love of God will develop out of universal gratitude, as the blossom develops from the root.” ~ Rudolf Steiner, Gratitude, Love, and Duty
