What are qualities, values and virtues?

They’re the intangibles we see in others, that we want for ourselves. Everyone is different – yet many of us strive for similar values.

Do you see the ones you admire in others?

Are there ones you don’t want, and would never feel thankful for…?

For which qualities, values and virtues are you thankful?

Rob and I decided a long time ago that the three values we’d work toward in our life together would be loyalty, optimism, and discovery. We are thankful whenever we can share aspects of these qualities with each other and experience them in others.

Other virtues we are thankful for – in ourselves and others – are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. And more. (If you’re wondering, they’re from HERE.)

You can’t touch or own any of these virtues.

They can’t be bought.

And sometimes they’re fleeting.

Yet, at every time, we’ve been thankful when we experience them.
