Gratitude

Have you read John Kralik’s book, A Simple Act of Gratitude; How Learning to say Thank You Changed My Life?

John Kralik

 

At age 53, John Kralik found his life at a terrible, frightening low: his small law firm was failing; he was struggling through a painful second divorce; he had grown distant from his two older children and was afraid he might lose contact with his young daughter; he was living in a tiny apartment where he froze in the winter and baked in the summer; he was 40 pounds overweight; his girlfriend had just broken up with him; and overall, his dearest life dreams–including hopes of upholding idealistic legal principles and of becoming a judge–seemed to have slipped beyond his reach.

Then, during a desperate walk in the hills on New Year’s Day, John was struck by the belief that his life might become at least tolerable if, instead of focusing on what he didn’t have, he could find some way to be grateful for what he had.

John Kralik chose an attitude of gratitude and it transformed his life. It changed his mental health and his outlook. It enriched his perspective and made him a better person.

 

 

 

 

Thank You, Hospice

I made this card for a dedicated group of people who made a huge difference in my family’s life for over two months. The Hospice team was physically present, they were kind, patient, knowledgeable, understanding, supportive and loving.

They made all the difference for us in a challenging and sad period of time.

Words truly cannot express our gratitude.
