Found in Translation by Angie Ledbetter

Reconnaissance
Mahalo
Ik ben vol van dankbaarheid
Sunt plin de recunostinta
Olen täynnä kiitollisuutta
Je suis plein de gratitude
Estoy lleno de gratitud
Ja sam pun zahvalnosti
Jeg er full av takknemlighet
Jag är full av tacksamhet
Jsem plný vdecnosti
Jestem pelen wdziecznosci
Estou cheio de gratidão

No matter in what language you say it, or by which act you promote it or with whom you share it, gratitude is a thing of beauty. The loveliness inherent in being grateful is reflected in its ability to return (often with dividends) to the giver/sender/expresser.

Today, in some large or small way, make yourself a reflection of these words: I am full of gratitude. Notice how much better your day is.

I've found that gratitude is the perfect antidote to stress. And with the holidays here I'm trying harder than ever to take deep breaths and stay in that grateful state of mind. Thanks, Angie!

As for the holidays (and all the stress that word implies), I'm seriously concentrating on being thankful to be getting together with family & friends, and that we have so much to share...food, laughter, memories...
