Stories about Gratitude

Short Inspirational Stories - Gratitude Stories


These stories about gratitude are for your inspiration and encouragement.

We all like stories. Especially children. And especially if they're true.

Stories can be fun. It's also a simple, easy way to learn valuable lessons that would otherwise ... be ... rather ... boring.

A good story grabs our attention, drives deep into our mind, and fires up the imagination like nothing else.

Here's some stories about gratitude for you to enjoy.

St Therese of Lisieux Thank Your Stars Stories

The name of this website, Thank-Your-Stars, sounds "New Age." Some people have told me that. And yes, I knew that when I got the domain name.

St Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower of Jesus, wrote about the stars over 100 years ago.


Story behind Starting My Own Website

Starting my own website has been a lengthy process. It was difficult at first. There was a lot of pain, just like when babies are born. Hope and help came. Mercifully and thankfully, we soon forget the pain when it's over.

Are you having a rough time? This site is for you. It's for your inspiration and encouragement. I need it too.... We all need it. And some of us could use a whole lot more of it.


Inspirational Short Story - A Seed in the Mud

An original, this inspirational short story, A Seed in the Mud, has been years in the making, and was first written when going through a long period of financial and health challenges.

Are you having a tough time in your life, or is it your business? Too much to handle, working hard, but you feel overwhelmed, like you're just spinning your wheels? Is it a waste? Why do things have to be so hard for me?

I understand, I've been through it. A Seed in the Mud was written just for you.

I've included it here in the stories about gratitude, because some day you will look back on this period of your life and be grateful for the direction it will eventually lead you. And I know, you and me, we don't like to hear this right now when .... it's just so painful !
