The song was covered by Ray Charles in 1962, featured on Charles' Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, and released as a single. Charles' version reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1962, for Five Weeks, as well as the U.S. R&B and Adult Contemporary charts.

From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 02/09/15 - "Gratitude":
Gratitude: The Key to a Happy Valentine's Day
by Melonie Dodaro
Valentine's Day is so filled with pseudo-romantic fluff that its true
meaning easily gets lost: Gratitude and appreciation for that special
someone in your life.
Expressing gratitude has been
shown to give people a big emotional lift. It does the same for
relationships. Gratitude and resentment or anger cannot reside in the
same place at the same time. So once you fill your heart with gratitude,
the negative emotions won't have a place to settle in and will
impossible, but it has possibilities.”
