This December I'm participating in An Advent of Gratitude to help remind me of the gifts I already have, what I often take for granted, and what I can and should be grateful for.
Today, I read that if my parents had a high school education, pay $1. If one attended college or university, pay $2. $3 if both attended.
My father graduated from high school, but my mother didn't. Neither one of them attended college. Thinking about their lives makes me especially grateful to be where I am today. And that's all that needs to be said.
