General George Patton

"A soldier in the American Third Army was sent to a rest camp after a period of active service. When he returned to his outfit, he wrote a letter to General George Patton and thanked him for the splendid care he had received. General Patton wrote back that for thirty-five years he had sought to give all the comfort and convenience he could to his men, and added that this was the first letter of thanks he had received in all his years in the Army."

How sad it is when we don't live with an "attitude of gratitude" and remember to continually thank our loved ones, our friends, our work mates and how about our employees and/or employer for all the many blessings they continually give to us.

How much sadder when we don't continually thank God and express our heart-felt appreciation to him for his innumerable blessings to us -- especially for and to Jesus for his dying on the cross in our place to give us the gift of forgiveness and eternal life. Which is the greatest gift in all the world.
