Growing Gratitude Naturally

A friend posted:

“Begin each day with a grateful heart.”

I “liked” that saying, and replied:

“Is there any other kind, my friend? An “Ungrateful heart” seems like an oxymoron to me. I’ve heard of lots of folks with ungrateful minds, but I believe that when they use their hearts more, their gratitude will grow naturally.
