With Gratitude…

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Celebrating Thanksgiving, for me, is a time to spend with family, close friends, and especially remembering to be grateful – grateful for all the abundance that life has to offer…grateful to live in the United States despite all the current financial and political problems…grateful for all the generous (of heart, mind and spirit) people I know and will get to know…grateful to be a nurse and artist…hopeful that decisionmakers in healthcare will come to understand, believe and value the tangible and intangible benefits that creativity and the arts offer to patients, families, staff and the local communities they serve…and this is just the short list. 

What are you grateful and hopeful for?

And now I leave you with a quote from Franklin D Roosevelt…

“We are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of our own minds.” ~franklin d roosevelt (and a few words paraphrased by me)

(Btw, the above picture is an old book I transformed to a book of quotes)

Have a Creative and Grateful Thanksgiving holiday! 🙂
