Beyond The Horizon




As I gaze out beyond the horizon and contemplate life I realize that I am but a single piece of a much larger picture.

At this time of year when we begin to celebrate and indulge in holiday festivities it is most appropriate to ponder a moment to be thankful.

When you pass by the Salvation Army kettle remember a little loose change adds up. Volunteer to read a story in the children's ward at the local hospital, the gift of smiles and giggles you'll receive are priceless.

And most of all say a little prayer for the brave men and women serving overseas spending another holiday away from their families. Singularly the task may seem insignificant... but united the sky's the limit...

Well said Susan. So often, we forget that the smallest things can make the most significant impact on someone. Just a smile or a pat on the arm can cheer someone who might otherwise be having a bad day. The best gift one can give is of themselves and what better way to show your gratitude for what you do have than sharing it with others

Wishing you and your family a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

Little by little each act of kindness and love can change our world for the better. I have so very much to be thankful for this day. So blessed I am, to share some with so many less fortunate
May you and your loved ones have a wonderful Thanksgiving Susan

You are so right, every little bit helps. And, being thankful every day is a blessing. I say Thank you the minute I wake in the morning, for I have another day, to love and be with my family.
