Thankfulness ~

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Albert Schweitzer

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Marcel Proust

The Magical Road to the Future

The road between the public road and the site of the new building has been completed.
It is about 450 feet long and is made of red shale. When it packs down over time and with wear it will look like an old country road.
So here we are, standing on the road to the future. At it's end will unfold future triumphs, failures, joys, sadness and realized dreams.
You are all invited to join me on the journey ~ maybe we will find some answers, maybe we will make a difference, but most importantly I hope we all enjoy the trip up this lovely winding road.
