Heritage Commons members holding up Starry Night art

As Thanksgiving approaches, the word “gratitude” becomes increasingly more prevalent. Many of us assume happier people are grateful, but that isn’t the correct order. It seems those that frequently relay their gratitude become the happy ones!

So…what are you thankful for? I’ll start…

I’m grateful for the beautiful fall colors and changing leaves. I’m grateful to have kicked cancer’s butt in 2020. I’m grateful that I have a big enough house that my sister and two nephews can live with me. I’m grateful for my three beagle-mix dogs. And I am grateful for Wendy Brown-Wieske’s dedication to Heritage Commons and her willingness to do whatever is needed to ensure our days run smoothly at the center.

During the month of November, check out our Gratitude Board in the library and feel free to add your own notes and pictures to it!
