Thanksgiving is a time to show gratitude for the blessings we have, but isn’t it also a time to expand on our kindness and generosity?
Just imagine all the blessings we would have if there was more kindness in the world.
We complain about the shortcomings of the world, imagine the mountains that could be climbed with generosity.
As I give thanks this season, I also remember those who have given so much to me with their attributes of kindness and generosity, it makes me strive to be a better person.
Thanksgiving reminds us of the unsung heroes, people who step up in big and small ways to save us.
Strangers, family, friends, first responders, the people who innately are there when we need as shoulder.
It’s a good time to say thank-you for these people who save our lives… Every Day!
As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, I always think of this section of Aaron Copland’s masterpiece “Appalachian Spring” the section of this symphony is one of the most beautiful I have ever heard.
As the music builds towards it greatest crescendo, I “feel” the joys of Thanksgiving, the simple pleasures and the simple gifts.
One of my favorite Thanksgiving melodies is this beautiful suite from the larger symphonic piece….. Appalachian Spring.
Tonight the Rabun County Wildcats play in round 2 of the State Playoffs.
Our entire community believes in them….. we know their coaches believe in them…… and they believe in themselves!
My daddy always used to tell me “you gotta believe,” I DO!
