gratitude - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Let us be Alice in a world of wonder,
Seeing anew the beauty in ever changing skies,
In each subtle nuance,
Stretching the moments into smiles,
Our soul learning wisdom without words,
So that we may find peace in gratitude,
And more joy than there are moments
To savour it.

If I were to make receipts for every good thing you had ever given me, there would be not a tree left standing on earth, nor oil in the ground from which to make ink.
Show me those open and loving eyes, for they are the door to my own soul. Touch me with those gentle hands and I am made anew, not as clay, but as if my body were reborn in its most perfect form. And so, in this love there is a deep gratitude, a sense that what is given is sacred and transient, passing in time into the eternal cycles of living.
You came my way as light from the sun, your emotions as warm as the touches of those gentle rays. You came as the loving do, with open eyes and arms, with an open mind and melodic words. You are the heart song of so many and in this deep sense of gratitude is the most pure of loves, the kind that lasts eternally.
In every storm you were the lighthouse, the direction in which to swim. There were days I felt that I had drown, yet you shone in the belief that I would swim when strength returned. You could not fashion a boat, nor take me from the waves, but your love was oxygen in my lungs and it was enough. So I grew strong, a good swimmer, and made it to your rocky shores. So I thank you eternally for your light, for your graceful persistence when I had lost my way. Gratitude feels as such a tiny word, but then so is love, and it is the emotion behind them that is infinite.
