Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul. –Rabbi Harold Kushner
I started a long post outlining the many things for which I am thankful, and then I realized each one of those things deserves way more than two or three sentences. There were so many things on my list, and that’s a lot of words for Thanksgiving morning when we have turkeys to cook and pies to make. so I scratched that idea. I couldn’t possibly do justice to my family, friends and numerous blessings in anything shorter than a dozen pages. High class problems, indeed.
But I did want to take a moment to acknowledge you, my blog readers. Thank you for indulging “my little project” conceived while on vacation in Vermont this summer. I can’t tell you how much your positive comments, encouragement and support mean to me. I know your time is valuable, and taking a couple minutes out of your day to hear what I have to say or share your thoughts enriches my life more than you’ll ever know.
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. — Albert Schweitzer
