“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it
is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
–William Arthur Ward
Thanksgiving is a bountiful holiday–lots of food, family, traffic, turkey, sugar, shopping–you get the idea. It’s also one of my favorites, a time to snuggle in with friends or family, sharing laughter and love, continuing some traditions and creating others.
As I settle in this evening in front of a delicious fire with my honey and my two canine “partners in crime,” my heart swells with gratitude for my many blessings.
To all those who so generously share your light, laughter, compassion and love with me each day–THANK YOU.
Hello. I was away for four weeks and v.busy the month before I left so I am just catching up on on all the blogs I follow. This is a fantastic quote and something we should all remember to do every day but all too often forget. Thanks for the reminder. Photos were great too. Happy New Year to you. May 2013 bring you much peace and joy.
