Today I am Thankful For...

 Gratitude is the memory of the heart.

Lady giving blessings

To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night:
to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring …
these are some of the rewards of the simple life.

John Burroughs, Naturalist (1837-1921)
