To Be Grateful...

As Thanksgiving approaches and families in the United States get ready to travel to the homes of friends and relatives, or prepare to welcome friends and relatives for the Holiday, I will not post a "Tale of Relentless Pursuit" this week. 

Instead, I want to share with you an amazing video that was sent to all the members of our photo "meetup" club this week.  Sheryl's very close friend died suddenly, and though she was saddened and grief-stricken, her friend's passing had the "silver lining" of bringing into focus how grateful she was for every single day that they had shared together on this planet.

And around the same time, someone sent her the link to this video by award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer, Louie Schwartzenberg.  It is called, Gratitude, and I am happy to be able to share it with you. Though it will take ten minutes of your valuable time, it may just change your world in a beautiful way .

Wishing you and your families a warm, safe, and happy Thanksgiving.
