gratitude

"it's not just another day.  it's the one day that is given to you.  today. it's given to you.  it's a gift.  it's the only gift that you have right now.  and the only appropriate response, is gratefulness.  if you do nothing else but to cultivate that response to the great gift that this unique day is.  if you learn to respond as if it was the first day in your life and the very last day.  then you would have spent this day very well."

how simple our purpose here on earth can be broken down into.  
to be a blessing to everyone we encounter.
and what a task that feels like at times.

our little family is traveling to long island for
thanksgiving with my parents and brothers.
and for that, we are grateful.

a very happy friday to you!
