Happy Thanksgiving...




I hope that on Thanksgiving (and every day) you are surrounded by those you love and that love you. I hope you feel blessed, that you carry hope and charity in your heart.

There are many out there who are struggling and I hope even more for you... that people reach out to support and comfort you, that your load becomes lighter and that you never feel alone.

I pray that in the days to come you can worry less, love more, and that when strangers see you on the street they wonder what the heck you are smiling about.

Let me leave you with a few words from people waaayyyyyy smarter than I:

Thanksgiving, to be truly Thanksgiving, is first thanks, then giving. ~ Unknown

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others remains and is immortal. ~ Albert Pine

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~ Thornton Wilder

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~ William Arthur Ward

Grace isn't a prayer you say before receiving a meal. It's a way to live. ~ Jackie Windspear

We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love. ~ Mother Teresa

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, that is the true measure of our thanksgiving. ~ W. T. Purkiser


Happy Thanksgiving all.
