Gratitude & Recognition

Sam and Colleen Yim


This is a picture of my parents in India and it makes me happy…

Happy because they are TOGETHER

Happy because it shows commitment through the good and bad times

Happy because it’s evidence of a successful marriage in a era where divorce is common

For that, I am grateful.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the people around us and those closest to us NEED recognition.

William James, an American philosopher and psychologist from the early 1900’s said”The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated” .

A simple “Thank you” or “I really appreciate you” goes a long way. Who deserves recognition in your life? Find them and encourage them 🙂
