thanks giving


I've had a lot to be thankful for this year. I think the sorrows have had to be part of the cycle of life. Sometimes we go through sad times; but if we stay with it, good is ahead. Thinking that way makes the tough times easier to bear when they seem to go on for too long. Going through the shadows, we need to draw on the positive times we've had and it gets us through.

Go confidently in the direction of your dream. Live the life you have imagined. If one advances confidently in the direction of one's dreams, and endeavors to live the life one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. 
--Henry David Thoreau
