Gratitude Practice

Let's start by taking a moment to practice gratitude.
  • What is something about your health that you are grateful for and why?
  • What is something you take for granted on a daily basis that you are grateful for?

The Recipient

Ronald McDonald is a nonprofit that started by realizing that parents need a way to stay close to their hospitalized children. They currently have 685 programs worldwide that allow parents who are far from home to stay close to their hospitalized child and benefit from the comforts of home without incurring hotel and food costs.Ronald McDonald is a nonprofit that started by realizing that parents need a way to stay close to their hospitalized children.
