Giving Thanks


 “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” Cicero

This time of year, Thanksgiving in the US, many of us recount all that we are grateful for, myself included. That said, I’d like to thank each individual who is a part of our community. You do amazing work for your patients, your communities and yourselves. It’s not easy and sometimes it’s not fun. But, as you can attest…it’s never boring.

Because our work with patients and others can sometimes be a challenge, I learned long ago when I was involved with an AIDS hospice to keep a gratitude journal. When our journey feels difficult, it’s a blessing to remember all that we are grateful for.

I wish to thank you for being a part of the NPBO community, your kudos and your feedback encouraging all of us to be better at what we do.

However you choose to spend the Thanksgiving holiday – with family and friends, in nature or in service to others, have a blessed holiday.
