NFFF Connect: Grieving with Gratitude

Kelly Buckley, presented the Keynote Address at the 2017 Wellness Conference. Kelly taught us that there is always just one little thing that we can hold on to be thankful for and presented each attendee with their own JOLT stones. Check it out!

“The idea of ‘just one little thing’ gently grew following the unexpected death of my son Stephen on July 4th, 2009. In desperate need of something to hold onto following the loss, I told myself that if I could find just one little thing to be thankful for, I would make it through the day. With each passing day, I was able to see that even though my heart was breaking, much goodness still surrounded me.”

Goodness is all around us, look for it and find your one little thing to be thankful for.
