Saying Grace

The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what’s good in your life.

Like the pumpkin pie and ice cream I had for breakfast.



Like the late, lingering fall ride I recently took with Kate. She snapped a photo of Mystic and me, with Ginger frolicking in the background.

Mystic fall

Like having my son Gabe living with me here in North Carolina, celebrating our first Thanksgiving together in six years.


Gratia. Gracias. Grazie.
