The "Thank You(s)" that We Meant to Say

"There is more hunger in the world for love and appreciation
in this world than for bread" -- Mother Teresa

Over the years there have been dozens of people who have played an important role in my life and to whom I wish I could turn today and say thank you. Sadly, sometimes I did not realize just how important they were until they were long gone.
So in this post I'd like to publicly say a few "Thank You(s)" that I meant to say.

A Heartfelt Blessing from Kate Nowak

A Kind and Gentle Place

In the daily business of living, we are each thrown in with a wide cast of others, some of whom bless our lives immeasurably by tiny acts of kindness that impress and change and help us make a difference in the world. When we spend just a moment or two out of any given day expressing our appreciation to those who have gone out of their way to help us, we not only make them feel better, we change our own vibration, as well, raising it to reflect the goodness for which we are grateful. The first step in making the world a kinder and gentler place to be is to acknowledge the kindness and gentleness we've already been shown.

May you always be willing to show your appreciation.

And may you always be aware that you are loved beyond measure and a cherished blessing to me.

Until tomorrow,

May your day be filled
with all things good
