Grateful for Osage County’s senior center

By Stephanie Watson

Gratitude. It is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Being grateful is truly a quality, an attitude, a frame of mind and an important part of one’s personality. It also reveals the depth of our character. Being grateful (or ungrateful) is a key ingredient to the relationship we have with the people around us.

Being grateful can sometimes be a challenging choice we make. A good example is the father, who hasn’t worn a tie more than twice in the past year and receives three god-awful ties from his teenage kids for his birthday. For the third year in a row! It just keeps getting harder and harder to be grateful.

But here’s the trick to being grateful in these instances. You must look past the gift or act of intended kindness and look to the intent of the giver. The old saying “it’s the thought that counts” is many times what we have to focus on to show gratitude.

The moral to this little article is this: Be grateful in all things, be thankful in all circumstances, and count our blessings daily. Life is too short and precious to have ungratefulness in our hearts.

We at the Osage County Senior Center are grateful for your attendance and support. Please come join us this week. For more information, stop by the center at 604 Market St., Osage City, or call 785-528-4906.
