We are always to remember to express thanks for the gifts that come to us. Our very lives are so dependent on so many things, and we have much to be thankful for. Being thankful brings us to humility and puts our attitudes in the proper perspective before all of Creation. Those who find nothing to give thanks for are fooling themselves, or not looking far enough or very hard.
This teaching was passed on to us by our friend Hitakonanu'laxk
Wanishi nimaxta. (Thank you brother.)
