Gratitude - The Virtue for January

A reflection by Charlie Kelly, 8th-grade student, and Student Council Officer. 

Gratitude - Gratitude is appreciating and thanking God for everything he has provided for us, as well as recognizing how lucky we are to have the greatest gift: God.

"To show gratitude to someone means to tell them that you are so thankful that they have become a part of your life. This virtue shows how much God cares for us. When we really look at the many important gifts and people in our lives, we need to thank God for all of them. He has taken care of us, even when we turn away from Him. God even sends one of his angels to watch over us our whole lives! Our Lord also gave us free will giving us choices on how to spend our life. And during our life, we should choose to be grateful for all of our friends, family, and most importantly, God, especially during the month of Gratitude."

“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart.” (Psalm 9:1)
