Lilly’s Lessons in Gratitude:

  • Gratitude, found in hard times, shapes character 
  • Gratitude, like a new prescription of eyeglasses, reframes thought and behavior
  • Gratitude, serves as an antidote, counteracting the poison of bitterness in times of chaos and difficulty

“I cried because I had no shoes, then I met a man who had no feet.” Gahndi
