I was inspired to write this piece after reading the opening quote by Wilfred T. Grenfell who said that “Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile.” I am ever amazed at the simplicity of such wisdom spoken in so few words, but with meaning so vast and life-changing for each of us if we just pay attention.
