The Gratitude Challenge

For the last 15 days on Facebook, I have been participating in friend Jana Riess' Gratitude Challenge. I'll continue to do so through the end of August. It's easy enough: List five things you are grateful for today.

It's Thursday and today I am grateful...

1. For the prospect of going kayaking on Lake Geneva this evening. (This assumes it stops raining first.)
2. For a meeting I had yesterday afternoon with a new client that could lead to long-term work and a meeting I have with a prospective client this morning that could also lead to the same.
3. For the efforts by dedicated men and women all over the world working in global public health on issues like tobacco cessation, finding a cause and cure for nodding syndrome, polio eradication, improving sanitation, and increasing access to life-saving vaccines. (To name only a few.)
4. For Google search and the ability to learn about people like this man, Brother David Steindl-Rast.
5. For this video...

The video is great. A good lesson in living in the present too.
