Give the gift of your gratitude

Thought of the moment, courtesy of writer William Arthur Ward:

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

How many times have you been helped, supported or touched by someone and neglected to say thank you? Your gratitude truly is a gift to give. It may seem small, but it can have enormous impact. Give it freely, and watch how it brightens the world around you.

Happy Holidays

The best gift you can give is

the gift of your time;

the gift of an ear to listen or a shoulder to lean on;

the gift of an open heart.

Merry Christmas.

You can make a difference

Today’s food for thought, courtesy of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

Give what you have.  To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Happy long weekend!

Love = space for two on a seat for one

I found this quote written by hand in an old photo album at the Roedde House Museum in Vancouver, British Columbia:

Love is blind, so they say.
Yet love can see on one small chair, sufficient room for two.

Beautiful.
