Gift of 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!”
