To say we feel grateful is not to say that everything in our lives is necessarily great. It just means we are aware of our blessings. ~Dr. Robert Emmons

- A loved one is ill or passed away.
- We lost our job.
- The car breaks down.
- We’re having financial woes.
- Our favorite sports team lost the playoffs.
