Life has its ups and downs. And I want to be mostly happy, so I do my best to focus on the ups, while striving for peace, love, and kindness during the downs. Often that’s easier said than done.
This is where family, friends, and even strangers come into play. There are countless kind loving people in the world, who have less than I, who suffer more than I’ll ever understand, and yet who get up every day with a smile and a determination to make this a good day for those around them. I do my best to emulate these wonderful folk, and next thing you know, I am smiling, have a skip in my step, and am able to have a good day.
For this, for my family and friends, and for your love and support, I am grateful. I wish you the best Thanksgiving ever!
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”—Marcel Proust (1871-1922), Novelist
