Some people could be given an entire field of roses and only see the thorns in it.  Others could be given a single weed and only see the wildflower in it.  Perception is a key component to gratitude.

What we seek we find; in our thinking we can validate anything to make us right, we alone determine that. So, science says we can only see what we believe!? Where do our beliefs come from? ~ pa’ris’ha
