The Gift of Gratitude

Gift of Gratitude

gratitude

Some days bite…really they do…just because.

It has always been this way since I can remember.

But when I lived in NYC all I had to do was take a walk outside.

Gradually gratitude filled my spirit, suddenly my troubles seemed to diminish among the millions of other people roaming the streets alongside me.

When I went to work as a nurse and then as a social worker
some days would bite too but then I would walk into a patient’s room.

My problems suddenly dwarfed in the presence of another human being.

I needed them as much as they needed me.

Some days it is difficult to let go of a biting day. You know that feeling, right?

Sometimes I want to just wallow in it. You know right?

Then I hear an inner voice…

“Snap out of it!”

“Look around you!”
