Happy Monday All,
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday we tend to reflect on the things we are thankful for. Although I have many things to give thanks for, my family, health and job, to name a few, one of the things I am most thankful for are my friends. So this letter today is dedicated to you, my dear QSPAC family and friends.
“A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care to acquire.” (Francois De La Rochefoucauld)
We don’t typically set out to make a friend the same way we set out to get a job or win the attention of someone we’re attracted to. Friends just seem to happen. We work or play together, discover that we share some things in common, and gradually a friendship grows. Or we face some hardship or misfortune together, and a friendship arises through mutual support. We make friends casually, but once they’re part of our lives, we should be careful not to take them for granted. Our friends make us better, stronger, and happier – and we should do the same for them.
NOTE TO SELF
I remember every day how lucky I am in my friendships. Today I’m going to tell my friends how much I appreciate them. (Linda Picone)
If we could spread love as quickly as we spread hate and negativity, what an amazing world we would have. (Lilac and Lavender)
The heart that gives, gathers. (Lao Tzu)
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. (Maya Angelou)
In observance of Thanksgiving I would like to share to special quotes I happened upon:
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live them. (John F. Kennedy)
“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)
I could not have expressed my feelings better than the words above.
Wishing all of you a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
