Gratitude

Thankful2014


"I believe that appreciation is a holy thing, that when we look for what's best in the person
we happen to be with at the moment, we're doing what God does;
so in appreciating our neighbor, we're participating in something truly sacred."
~Fred Rogers, Commencement Address, Middlebury College May, 2001

I've been called a dreamer since I was a little girl with her nose in books, staring off into space daydreaming. It's true. I was and I am, but I like to think that my optimism is seeing the world through the lens of the wonder-filled, the magical.

It's harder some weeks than others, when the world seems horribly off-balance. That's when I try to remember to look around me, to remember those in my circle who are close and far whom I love. They remind me that there are seeds of hope in the small, beautiful moments we spend together--so many shades of love--and I truly believe that love is our greatest experience of the Sacred.

If I have had the honor of spending time with you--sharing a meal, a conversation, a drink, a story, a moment, a memory, thank you. Thank you for the gift of your time and for sharing a part of yourself. Happy Thanksgiving. Cheers.
