Pause, Reflect, Be Kind...

"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

"Look kindly upon all people for you cannot fathom what epic tragedy lies behind their desperate situation in life. Everyone is struggling in one way or another. You cannot measure how much love they have in their hearts." - Dr. Jeff Mullen
This is a time for pause and reflection, a time to take inventory of all your blessings in life and be truly thankful. Not because it's Thanksgiving but rather because you are moved by your heart to do so. Then find someone who is struggling with the sting of adversity and offer them what you have and take for granted everyday. Let them know they matter, show them someone cares and lend them a helping hand. Even the smallest act of kindness may give someone who has given up a reason to hope and go on. In this world of so much and so many, no one should ever feel alone. . .
  "Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action." ~W.J. Cameron
"Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds."  ~Theodore Roosevelt
