Gratitude for gratitude

People constantly amaze me.  And usually for the better.

I work with older adults, and there’s a reason some are called the greatest generation.  And not just those born in the US and survived the depression, fought in wars, and continue to live and thrive.  There are many who immigrated, worked hard, survived many challenges, and continue to live and find joy.

I am overwhelmed with the amount of gratitude this generation has — especially by those who have little (in terms of income, housing, and other economic standards that we so often categorize ourselves with).  It really makes you reflect on your own goals and perspectives when others are so grateful for what they have that they can’t even imagine having anything more.  I am so grateful to know these people, and to know that I can always grow my gratitude.

Who are you grateful for today?
