When we tell God, Spirit, Source, Higher Power what we are grateful for upon arising we are communicating to that which created and creates everything, including ourselves, that we want to have in our life that which we thought about or spoke of.
When we are not grateful we are communicating to God, Spirit, Source, Higher Power that we do not want in our life that which we do not acknowledge our gratitude for. What we take for granted we are not grateful for and will most likely lose.
An attitude of gratitude is so very powerful!
