Gratitude and Appreciation

Are these the same
Except for name
I don't think so
One is a step beyond

When I'm grateful
And I am
I give conscious thanks
Aware of all I have

When I appreciate
I value the gift, gesture
encouraging words
All rise in estimation

So are these the same
except for name
They encompass each other

Thanks to Teaching Authors for this Thanks-Giving
