Giving Thanks

My given name is Katherine Ellen, Ellen after my maternal grandmother who taught me many things, among them: Count Your Blessings. She would tell me this as a child whenever I had a complaint or needed a little insight.  She said it both in a disciplinary manner, as in, "kid, you better recognize," and in a life-affirming loving way as in, "isn't this world a gift!"  I will always love her for teaching me this, and even scientists now know that she was right-on. So cheers, and happy Thanksgiving.
