things I am most thankful for.....#7

This past weekend T and I went to my Mom's church in the village where the cottage is. I was overwhelmed by the thoughtful, kind words we received from so many in her congregation. It is amazing the people you will meet in your lifetime.....some in just the first meeting will mean so much! So many of the people that I met on Sunday gave us such warm kind words of encouragement and welcome.....

For this I am truly grateful.........I am so lucky to have many people like this in my life.....some are family members, some are dear friends, some acquaintances....if more people in this world lead their lives with thoughtful, kind compassion towards everyone they met like the ones I met on Sunday...wow what a world this would be!!

So that is number #7 for me.......to the wonderful folks I met on Sunday and everyone out there that strives to be kind, thoughtful...supportive and gracious....everyday!

Encouragement goes a long way. I am glad you have so many sincere people in your life who genuinely care about you!

I try to remind myself every day that you never know what battle or struggle someone is facing when you come across them. And in that moment, your words and actions could make or break them...and so I always try to make sure that I am someone that is uplifting. I know that I am SO thankful for those people that do the same for me.
