GRATITUDE (noun): Thankfulness or gratefulness, from the Latin Gratus, pleasing, thankful
In following with tradition during my tenure as President and CEO of Henry Ford Hospital, I am pleased to share my annual holiday card with you.
Gratitude isn’t simply saying thank you and moving on with life. I’m talking about the profound feeling of deep appreciation for those who mean the most to you as well as the profound feelings that they have for you.
Dozens of studies have shown that gratitude makes us happier, healthier human beings. It increases our self-esteem, mental acuity and empathy for others.
I’ve committed time daily for reflection on this very topic. I challenge you to do the same.
I am grateful for you. Each of you. All of you.
Happy New Year!
