The other day a patient surprised me with these stunning flowers; her way of thanking me for my help.

Such a generous, completely unexpected gift reminded me that giving and receiving are the yin and yang of open heartedness.

I’m thankful for the bright beauty of this gift, and for the privilege of doing this work.

What does gratitude feel like to you?

How do you express gratitude?

Are you able to give and receive in equal measure?
