Confusion Quotes

I hope you find value in these encouraging quotes about Confusion.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,

a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
