We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

I Am Thankful....

I am thankful for children who can play Monopoly for hours and hours and hours without going to a throw down....

I am thankful for friends who are family....And still keep showing up.

I am thankful that I knew enough to say yes when he asked.

I am thankful for this life we have created...for all the times we have had and have yet to have....for the lessons we have shared and have yet to share....I am thankful.

I am thankful for gifts from the deepest depth my mother-in-laws heart.

I am thankful for the thousands of pictures of my favorite brother.  And I do mean thousands. 

I am thankful for the land of the free....

Just sayin'.
