Gratitude changes everything

A series of events like getting shingles half a year ago to seeing a scribbled poem I wrote last month on the train home describing how I feel lighter and more hopeful–to cleaning my bed shelves and reading old birthday and holiday cards three days ago - allowed me to come up with this quick blog post topic: gratitude. Holidays aren’t the jolliest or easiest of times for everyone.
