Live with gratitude and appreciation. Make good choices that produce residuals. (Matthew McCaughey) Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Gratitude is something I have this Thanksgiving and it’s an attitude I’ve had to learn along the way despite my circumstances. My life past the age of 22 took unexpected twists and turns.
