Stand By Me

This is a thank you SHOUT-OUT to everyone who has stood by me through thick and thin. My gratitude knows no bounds. Click on the title above, sit back and enjoy yourself for five minutes. A friend sent this along today, and I'm hoping you'll pass it on to your friends and family, encourage them to send it to their friends, and make everybody's day a little brighter.

Thank you all.

I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
~ Albert Schweitzer

You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink. ~ G. K. Chesterton

To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude. ~ Albert Schweitzer

"Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting."
