Gratitude Day is Every Day

What is gratitude?

According to one source: Gratitude means thanks and appreciation. … Gratitude, which rhymes with “attitude,” comes from the Latin word gratus, which means “thankful, pleasing.”

Officially, Gratitude Day this year is Friday, September, 21st.

You might ask, “Where did the official gratitude day come from?”

First celebrated in 1965, it was later officially adopted by the United Nations Meditation Group and is recognized each year as a day to show appreciation for all things, big and small.

But, for me, every day is gratitude day and today, we would like to acknowledge and express our deep appreciation to those who supported our annual River Walk to Make a Difference this past June.
