Thank you. Merci. Gracias. Grazie. Danke. Arigato. November is a month of Thankfulness. Senior Access is so grateful for you volunteers and donors who selflessly give time and time again.
This November, have An Attitude of Gratitude! Imagine our world if we all made this attitude a daily habit. It is sometimes easy to lose sight of the many things in which we can and should be grateful. Our lists may be different but we can still have a list. As you make a daily choice to be grateful, you can change lives.
How can you develop an Attitude of Gratitude? There are many ways, but one way is to give service to someone, to volunteer. As you give that service, you are more aware of another person’s needs rather than your own. Perspectives can change and the more that perspective changes, the more gratitude can grow. John F. Kennedy said, "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them."
Our clients come to us with varying needs. Some clients have poor health, some have never learned to drive, some lack funds for a vehicle, some have just aged out of driving, yet one thing they have in common is being grateful for you. You are the ones who drive them to needed doctor appointments. You are the ones who talk to them on the phone or visit them in their home. You are the ones who offer a hug or a hand to hold. You are the ones who help with those handy-man jobs. You make a difference in their lives and help them to feel gratitude in return. They are so appreciative of all you do for them.
As you approach this very busy, hectic time of year, take a moment each day to show and grow your gratitude. Do you need to find a place where you can volunteer? Senior Access needs you. With a growing population of people who no longer drive, we need people like you who are willing to give what they need.
