 Be encouraging. Be kind, but most of all be thankful.

I’m Thankful for family and friends

I’ve found that the older we get, the more clear it becomes that loving and being loved are the only really important things in life. But it's easy to forget how awesome the people we see every day really are and to let them know how thankful we are to have them in our lives.  They are one of the best parts of your life. It’s important to tell them.

Life goes by in the blink of an eye, so be sure to appreciate the many beautiful moments you spend with your family and friends. 

The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege.

Charles Kuralt

We never hear enough how much we make life worth living for other people, and letting someone know is one of the greatest gifts we can give to them.  Expressing gratitude is one of the most important things that friends can do. 

One of the best ways to show our family and friends we love and appreciate them,  is to show them that their well being is a higher priority to us than other things in our lives.  

There is always enough time to be kind and to encourage those we love.

Sometimes we spend more efforts with people that are strangers in terms of making an impression than the person that's closest to us. And you just gotta remember not to take for granted that person that's closest to you.

 Michael Douglas

So today I’m sending out a big THANK YOU to all my friends and family that make my life complete.

I agree that love is the key that holds us all together. We just need to remember to express it among those we care for.

Oh yes. The same here. As I get older I want to thank others and let them know how much their friendship means to me. I have a small circle of friends here on the net and the blogging world. Of course MA is a part of that and I thank you for the words you put out there. I try to read them ever day. This is of course a thanks from Florida, And yes this is a land of lizards,. thousands of them..
