Health Note

by Sally Coffin, R.N.

True gratefulness comes from a conscious decision to recognize your blessings, coupled with the emotional feelings that accompany a thankful heart. An ungrateful person can utter the words “thank you” in protest. A thankful person can hold their gratitude as a guarded secret, yearning to be shared. Grateful people not only count and take joy in their blessings, but they influence others with words and deeds by deliberately displaying their pleasure and appreciation to those who should receive it. Life is full of opportunities for giving thanks. Begin by developing your grateful spirit today (taken from http://www.abetteryoublog.com/). 
God knows that life can be challenging for each of us and gives us these words through Paul to reflect upon, “Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.” Phil. 4:6.  

Live Gently and Be Blessed,

-Sally Coffin, RN
