How about being grateful for what we do have?

It occurred to me today, as I was drinking my morning coffee and watching news stories on NBC, that many of us live our lives with an entitlement mentality.  We have a tendency to expect things to be given to use without effort or investment.  We think that we are owed all the comforts of the world, and if others have more than we have, that they should give it to us, not because they want to, but because we have a right to it.   We demand that we are given exactly what we want, even at the expense of another, and if we don't get what we want we throw a tantrum.

Perhaps we should all look at the world in a different way.  Perhaps we should start with an attitude of gratefulness for the things that we have earned,  and admire the people that have earned more than ourselves.  We should not expect things to be given to us just because we exist, but things should come to us through hard work and dedication.  If we become grateful and count our blessings, our lives will be much more rich and we will be more likely to bless someone less fortunate with the talents and things that we have earned.

With all of this in mind, I want to express my gratitude to the team at Warren Woods Veterinary Hospital for their Open House efforts last weekend.  They volunteered their time and opened the hospital to our clients and friends in order to raise money for two charities; Pets for Veterans, and The K-9 Police Dog Fund.  The efforts of the WWVH team, donating their time and energy to run this annual Photos with Santa and Open House is a joy to see.  

Thank you to the Warren Woods Veterinary Hospital Team for their efforts towards the Open House and each day to enrich the lives of our clients and their pets.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from myself and the WWVH Team!
