I picked up this book, The Secret of Saying Thanks by Douglas Wood, at the library to read to the girls. Although Mr. Wood is completely missing the real secret of saying thanks, I liked how the book ends and thought this was a good place to share.
The heart that gives thanks is a happy one,
for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time.
The more we say thanks,
the more we find to be thankful for.
And the more we find to be thankful for,
the happier we become.
We don't give thanks because we're happy.
We are happy because we give thanks.
