The Thanksgiving Hunt was cold and windy.  This was at our
Blessing.  Sug's Twenty Sumetin Friend rode her that day.
I'm grateful to know her.
I really thought I'd be writing about the traditions and pageantry of the Thanksgiving Hunt.  I would be telling you that it was the most fun and exhilarating start to a day of gratitude.  And then add that Black Friday, for me, was the day of moaning and groaning over quad muscles screaming after a 3 hour hunt where at least 1.5 hours was done at a dead gallop.

I really did think that I would be writing about that.  But...

There was this post on Facebook that fills my heart with the very emotions that this Holiday season evokes - gratitude, love, hope and joy!  It was a very simple thank you:

"I have the best horse in the world. Went to the beach for the first time ever and he was a superstar! What an amazing experience, so proud of my boy. Thanks EC for making Christmas come early!"

I don't know the poster's circumstances for she is not my "FB Friend"...  I can feel her joy and happiness and, her gratitude is deep.  EC, my "FB Friend", had the trailer space, made the offer and quite simply made someone's dream come true. 

Tis the season... 

Selfishness comes in all forms...  For me?  It's time and that overwhelming phrase, "I'm too busy to _______."   It isolates me from beauty and keeps the colors gray.  And, in the end, work is never completed and I am alone.  Ahhh, knowing one's behavior is a key step in changing it. 

What if?  What if you just for a moment, did something simple... something positive for another person without expecting anything in return...  You just never know when, you too, could give someone a gift... an experience that could last a lifetime...  you just never know.
Da Boys showing their gratitude!

Read the book, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, you just never know how your actions impact another's life. 

Go for it and make someone's day!
