It&#39;s your outlook - your choice. Every day we have choices to make. It&#39;s when we are feeling frustrated, exhausted, and put-upon that we have to dig deep into ourselves and find what is good.</p> <p> Gratitude is recognizing, appreciating and acknowledging the simpler things in life. Gratitude is something we have to practice, and practicing it can help relieve some of the stress of caregiving. Studies have shown that when we think about what we are grateful for on a daily basis we can improve our lives.</p> PHOTO: Rotary donation http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/photo-rotary-donation-0 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/rotary_project_grad_0.jpg" alt="The Hodgenville Rotary Club donated $250 to Project Graduation.
