I am patiently waiting for the traffic light to change. Standing in the center divider is a man. He is holding a sign that reads, “Hungry, homeless, need help”. He has a kind smile and sad eyes. I don’t know what his story is.
This past year has taught me some incredible life lessons, especially one in gratitude. It’s not that I didn’t have gratitude before, but this was a much deeper lesson. I have always had gratitude for the people in my life, the love I experience from my loved ones, and even the material possessions that provide daily comfort in my life. This is much more than all this.
