Living with a Grateful Heart

Last week, we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. It's always a wonderful chance to gather with family and friends and think about the things and people for which we are most grateful.

Gratitude engenders humility, and humility brings about gratitude. Living in a state of gratitude can help you focus on the positive aspects of your life. When you try to be thankful, it becomes easier to see challenges as valuable life experiences that help you grow stronger.

Recently, we participated in an exercise in which we were asked to think of a person who had blessed us in a time of need. We then wrote a note of thanks to that person, expressing our gratitude for what he or she did. We invite each of you to try this exercise!

When you count your blessings, it can help you recognize all the people who have blessed your life by their examples. We count you, our wonderful 4Life family members, as some of our greatest blessings. Thank you for all of your love, support, and commitment to the mission of 4Life!

We are grateful for you!
