Times are really hard right now. And when things are really hard, it can be hard to remember the good things. Our METS team has been working hard to remember and be grateful for all of the things that are still in our day to day lives.

Gratitude comes from the latin word gratus, which means thankful, pleasing. Gratitude is a feeling of thankfulness and appreciation. For some of us, we’re grateful for a good book, or a tv show that has lightened moods. For others, it’s time to reconnect with family over a board game.
