So often, we feel grateful but either forget to express our gratitude or don’t think it’s all that important or necessary.
This quote, by William Arthur Ward, is about not keeping our gratitude to ourself. If we have something we’re thankful to someone for, we should tell them. As illustrated by this quote, not doing so is like wrapping a present but never presenting it to its intended receiver. However, that person cannot read our mind. So they would never know what their action(s) meant to us without us letting them know. Letting them know–showing gratitude–is a priceless gift we all have to give.
