Over the years when I hosted World Gratitude Day Pittsburgh, I would send along quotes. I was surprised by the positive feedback and how people were sharing them with others. I’ve compiled my favorite quotes and offer them to you as a thank you for reading my news and being willing to stay connected with me. Feel free to copy and use the quotes as well as the slide I created.
