Sat on a train in my early twenties, I chatted to a Hindu gentleman. We chatted about life and religion and he asked me what I thought the most important thing in life was. I was unsure and offered lots of ideas. I never forgot how we shared that ultimately ‘thankfulness’ was the most important thing. I have thought about this often and feel it to be profoundly true. I am thankful that he was kind enough to share this.
