Opening Gifts

By: Jim Bruce

Today’s Tuesday Reading is “Opening Gifts.”  This essay’s author is Roger Schwarz, CEO of Roger Schwartz and Associates and it recently appeared in his blog.

Quote of the Week

By: Lori Green

"We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude."

Cynthia Ozick

  • What are you not paying attention to and how can you start?
  • What little things does your family do?
  • What do the people that you work with do well?
  • What would it be like without these people?


"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."
