Giving Thanks - A Season of Gratitude Thanksgiving and the winter holidays have always been my favorite time of year. They are very likely to be different for all of us this year. Personally, Patrick and I will stay to ourselves, forgoing trips to see both families, and missing out on the celebrations, warmth, and belonging that normally accompany the season. What is not different this year is the overwhelming feelings of gratitude and caring that I feel personally for family and friends, and professionally for all of you, the AUPHA community, the Board of Directors, and our team of dedicated staff members.  I am very grateful for the opportunity ...

The year 2020 will surely be remembered for a lingering and destructive pandemic that adjusted our way of living and brought death and a measure of havoc to countless lives. 2020 will also be remembered as a season of growing anxiety and contention brought about by lingering political, economic, and social strife.  And yet, as we approach this Thanksgiving weekend and the larger Holiday season, my heart is filled with gratitude. In a thousand ways my cup is never half-empty, but always filled to overflowing— especially  when I open my eyes and look.   Having and expressing gratitude invites a feeling of peace. It can resolve disputes and strengthen friendships ...
