"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
I was going to go into the whole spill of what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving, but I think, except for the few choice gems we can each add to the list, our lists are pretty much the same. We are all happy for our health, our family, our friends, our pets, and for just being alive. The gem I would like to add to my list to make it special is exemplified in the below photo.
I am sure Butler would agree that we should get a little sentimental at the holidays and Bagman would humbug that. I am kind of in between Butler and Bagman. But I am right on with Kennedy.I think we should live our words. Even more, our hearts.
Over the years, I have been an observer of people and life; I can pretty much tell when people are good from the inside out and not just on the outside. I am not sure if it was a given-gift or a learned gift, but it is nevertheless a gift I am thankful for. I am also thankful that I can use my talents to share happy moments like this with the world.
What is your gem?
I captured this happy couple coming out of a restaurant while I was running errands. Yes, the hat caught my eye, but they both seemed to have songs in their hearts. They made me smile. I had to run back to the car and grab a camera. I hope they make you smile. No, I did not know them.
