Thanksgiving 2013… I am grateful for what I am and have…


"I am grateful for what I am and have.

My thanksgiving is perpetual.

It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing

definite – only a sense of existence."

HENRY DAVID THOREAU – December 6, 1856


On this day of gratitude I had to also share this Ted Talks video which a friend sent to me. If you watch, be sure to go beyond the beginning… about 3 1/2 minutes into it we hear from a young girl… then about a minute later we are given the gift of insights from an elderly gentleman that inspire us to open our eyes and be continually amazed by who and what is around us, each and every day.
