Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.—Melodie Beatty Today I will develop an attitude of gratitude. I reflect on how many people make contributions to my good life. I name and thank—either in person or silently— all the people I know, and see, who do work I am grateful for. I especially take time...

Recently I read this story: CAT CANDLES to a pack of Cub Scouts for a Halloween treat.  They were very polite.  It was a big audience, maybe twenty or thirty kids and parents.  They were quiet, they enjoyed the story, and they thanked me when I was done.  Felt good.  Today, I got this from one of...
