Things are so fast-paced these days that saying ‘thank you’ is getting to be a luxury. I notice this when I give tips to taxi drivers or gasoline attendants, they don’t even say thank you anymore. I try to say thank you every time and not just because it’s a chore. I say this because life is short and the littlest things matter to other people. We must use our gift of speech and say things when the opportunity arises because the moment may never come again.
1. I thank God for always weaving little miracles into our lives. Like any other family, we have our up’s and downs but we are thankful to be together, to be safe, comfortable and be able to eat three meals a day. Other families aren’t so lucky and we pray for them too.
2. I gave birth to my youngest daughter Lucy when I was 40. Am thankful that she’s growing up to be smart and lively (and curly-haired). Truly the light of our lives.
3. Very thankful for my job filled with wonderful people. I truly owe you – after all these years.
4. My husband who has no mean bone in him (well, sometimes he yells when stressed too.) Thank you for making my favorite Garlic Chicken. When you cook this, I forgive you for not buying me a new Coach bag.
5. Now that am older, I appreciate better my fully-functioning body and all five senses. The ability to be able to blog still while the mind’s sharp.I truly dread being sick and bed-ridden and I trust there will always be my angel watching.
6. Thank you to my dearest family, friends and readers.
- The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
