returning to the gallery and seeing all of the wonderful gratitude pages was such a treat especially in the wake of the the last two weeks of storms here on the east coast.



it took me a while to grow into this quote by sarah ban breathnach but when we recently tended to my FILs grave on his birthday the photo of this rusted old fence surrounding the cemetery appeared to be made of broken hearts and reminded me once again of its message:



"When our hearts are broken,

we don't think we have much

to be thankful for.

We don't have to be smiling

when we say 'Thank you.'"
