Words of Wisdom

This week the whole nation will set aside a few days to celebrate Thanksgiving, which is, of course, a time to give thanks … expressing gratitude for all our blessings. Gratitude is an attitude - a very important attitude according to some people.

Let’s take Samuel Johnson, for instance. He was one of the first English writers to compile a dictionary, and he eventually took gratitude rather seriously. Samuel Johnson said, “Gratitude is a fruit of a great civilization; you do not find it among gross people.” We don’t have any gross people here, do we? I didn’t think so. So today, let’s have a little attitude … gratitude attitude. I’d be so grateful.

Make it a great day … or not. The choice is yours.
