Jenn – The Serenity Space
Jenn believes that expressing gratitude is one of the most
Powerful, soul-fulfilling acts we can do!
She poured out gratitude in her post and shared
Several inspiring quotes with us!
This is one of the two that particularly resonated with me:
Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude.
Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness.
Thankfulness may consist merely of words.
Gratitude is shown in acts.
