Quotable Sunday 11/18/2012
Thanksgiving week is upon us and it is a time for gratitude and reflection. We are most grateful to be able to do the work we love, to be out in nature and to work with beauty. We are most thankful to our family and friends who support us in our endeavors and reward us with their kindness and generosity of spirit and encouragement. We use this time to reflect and contemplate our lives, our place in the universe and our direction to the future. We strive to be in the moment and not rushing head long into the next season or holiday but to enjoy and bask in the fruits of our labors and of others who work the land. We spend time remembering our past and all our family members who are no longer with us in body but remain so connected in spirit. We use this time to relax, re-energize, re-educate and heal from a long season of work. We spend this time to begin to plan and prepare for our future tasks.
So take a moment to reflect and be grateful for all you have, all you are and for all that you will be. We are so very grateful for you.
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is
generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. -Johannes A. Gaertner
