The Word “Gratitude”

I believe that whoever originally coined the word “gratitude” must have consciously or sub-consciously combined the words “great” and “attitude”.

I believe that one needs gratitude to have a great attitude.

Or put another way, one can’t help but experience gratitude when they have a great attitude.

With Love,
