“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”
I think that as a married couple we have found our strength in being grateful. We are thankful for each other, the gifts we've been given, and even the little things around us. The birds at the feeder and the flowers in the garden make us happy, as do reading good books or a walk in the park.
We have been asked to contribute to the For Your Marriage section of the USCCB’s website where I will be writing monthly articles with Himself from the perspective of a couple living out their marriage vows without children. We named our blog Wonder Doubled in honor of this quote of Chesterton's.
