Thoughts on gratitude from world leaders, professional leaders and my own experience.
Elie Wiesel: For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.
Florence Nightingale: Live life when you have it. Life is a splendid gift—there is nothing small about it.
John F. Kennedy: As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words but to live them.
Gretchen Cosby: As a nurse, I have been invited into the most intimate moments of the human experience, witnessing the true grace we all hold within us. My career has been a gift from God.
I am grateful for my friends—the new friends that I have found on this journey and the old friends who have ridden alongside me.
I am grateful for my family, whose love and devotion while I serve has not wavered, and has buoyed me during challenging times.
