Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving this day!

The World Needs Appreciation

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.

– Michael Josephson

Gratitude – the Fairest Blossom

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Wednesday of Hope – In a Power Greater than Ourselves

It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable. 

– Maya Angelou

Wednesday of Hope – with Gratitude

Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!

– Rainer Maria Rilke
