“Through the eyes of gratitude, everything is a miracle”. - Mary Davis
Gratitude is the feeling and attitude of appreciation and thankfulness for the good and blessings that we receive in life. Scientists have proven that when we express our gratefulness towards other people, we tend to feel happier, calmer and as a result, it opens up more channels for goodness to enter into our lives. As kindness and success starts from home, students of grade 3 created their family photo frames to express their gratitude towards their family. The outcome was beautifully reflected in three words 'Gratitude changes everything'.
