“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today is Thanksgiving and it is a day set aside for gratitude, which is why I love this day so much! There are so many things that I am thankful for and you are at the top of my list. You have been here every week reading Charity Matters, cheering me on with story ideas, commenting when a post touches you and sharing posts with friends. I am so truly grateful for you.
Your own giving of time and your excitement to share your favorite cause fill my heart each and everyday. As, I sit here up at the lake surrounded by family and friends my cup is running over. I have been given so much and feel the need to give as much back as I possibly can and I get the sense you feel the same way too.
So wherever you are this year, serving meals to the homeless, slaving away in your kitchen cooking or simply watching football on TV, know that I am grateful for you, your support and all you give of yourself to others.
