To celebrate Laura on the anniversary of her passing (Jan 16), I decided to wrap up the last few of her collectible vases, write thank you notes and set off around Manhattan with our old lady shopping cart delivering these simple gifts to the doctors, lawyers and the tax accountant who made our lives bearable throughout the last 18 months. My first stop was Memorial Sloan Kettering and no sooner had I arrived than two of the nurses we knew and loved, jumped into the elevator and hugged me. Laura always believed in gratitude. She said it was the only practice that helped with her depression. I do a little every morning. I am no expert but I believe gratitude helps us grow more good in our lives.
