25 Days of Gratitude

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.

Thornton Wilder

As Christmas approaches this year, I’m reflecting on what I’m grateful for. What brings you joy each day? Think about what gifts you can give to yourself as you prepare to give to others. More time to do what you love, rest, good company, laughter? Stay tuned, and take a moment during the hustle and bustle to remember what you’re most thankful for.
