A Legend and a Lesson!

Two Angels were sent down from Heaven, each of them having been given a basket by God.  They went to all parts of the world, visiting the poor and the rich, the young people and the old, the healthy and the sick.  Eventually they flew back to heaven with their baskets.
One basket was very heavy, the other extremely light.  The heavy basket contained the prayers of all those who had asked God for some favour.  The other basket, the light basket, was the one carried by the angel who had been sent to collect all the "Thank you" prayers from those who had received blessings from God. 
We constantly beg God for what we want or need.  Do we always remember to give thanks?
