In appreciation I will be sending a gratitude bead strand.
What Gratitude Beads mean to me.
Many years ago I was presented a beautiful little bag of Gratitude Beads from a stranger at my local grocery store. She handed me a beautiful little bag containing a strand of 10 Gratitude Beads accompanied by the explanation of how to use them and walked away without saying a word. I was so touched by this little old lady out in the parking lot and her genuine act of kindness that I now live my life with this mindset. Every day I start my day listing ten things I wish to be grateful for that day. Most of us could sail way past ten…..
When I help parents to navigate whether their teen is using drugs or not, it can be an overwhelming, sad or even devastating journey. After getting this knowledge parents can sometimes feel a range of emotions….whatever the outcome, I believe we all have at least ten things to be grateful for every day. I always leave the families I work with a pretty little bag of gratitude beads, along with their instructions to help remind them of that.
For those of you who bless this company with a donation I would like to give you some Gratitude Beads to show my gratitude. A package comes with a gratitude strand, the written explanation of how to use them, a beautiful little bag and our deep felt gratitude.
Note: As a donor, you can deduct contributions you make under IRC Section 170.
