Gratitude… The Greatest Of Virtues

Gratitude is not about the things we have in life, it’s about appreciating and loving life itself. Just as it is... right here and right now. 

Our featured film this week "A Good Day" offers a simple yet powerful lesson for all of us. It is simple in that it reminds us that life is beautiful and worth living. It is powerful in pointing out that we are here for a reason... that we have a purpose. It's a message that is often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.

As the film points out; gratitude is not just about the things we have in life, it's about appreciating and loving life itself, just as it is... right here and right now, regardless of the circumstances.  As we begin to view life though the lens of gratitude, we find that our gratefulness overflows into blessings all around us"... and that is when everything changes.
