Gratitude is defined as "readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness." Throughout our first week in the community, I found myself astonished at the level of gratitude expressed by the residents of the villages. The people of our community were both ready to have their health assessed and eager to learn about ways to modify their lifestyle choices. After completing community visits with residents who own very little and struggle to provide enough food to feed their families from week to week, many villagers would offer us food, drinks, and gifts to show their appreciation. Others offered to teach us their occupations, such as dyeing silk and making rice noodles to sell at market.
