Giving Thanks

  1. Thank you Sherri. My brother and I spent a nice Thanksgiving at the nursing home with our mom. I hope you and yours was nice.

  2. Steph,
    We all have a lot to be thankful for. Have a very happy Thanksgiving.


  3. What a lovely quote.. you’re right – actions speak louder than words! Thanks for following my blog and I look forward to reading more of your inspiring posts soon.. x

  4. The feeling is mutual Carla! Isn’t it funny how things work out? I’ve mulled over how my life has changed after sight loss and I know I wouldn’t have met the phenomenal people I’ve encountered had I not lost my vision. I’m constantly amazed at the positive effects we have on one another as we embark on changing the world.

  5. Hi Steph. I am wondering if you would like to be featured on next Monday’s Small Steps Up Mountains post? If so, I would certainly include a link to your About page and wonder which other posts you might like highlighted (If you agree to be featured)

  6. Amen! Thanksgiving a bit tough this year being in solitary confinement due to my broken ankle and my blindness. But I know I have a lot to be thankful for, and I would add meeting you makes it one more blessing to be thankful for. So glad I stumbled upon your site! (But if my sight existed, I would have never stumbled and broken my ankle!)

  7. Hi Wendy. Some people are so gifted with their use if words and President Kennedy was such a person. I hope you are doing well.

  8. I agree with you Paul. Words are powerful and even more so when they prompt us to take action. I hope you and you family had a lovely Thanksgiving.

  9. Thank you Lynne. It was such a nice day. My brother, son and I picked up holiday meals at Boston Market and shared dinner with our mother at the nursing home.

  10. Quotes so often provide perspective by way of a clever turn on words. But this one offers real substance, because it beckons people to action, as so often President Kennedy’s words do. Hope you’re having a Happy Thanksgiving with your family, Stephanae. :O)

  11. Happy Thanksgiving Steph, President Kennedy (I didn’t know he read this blog too), and to all who read Steph’s wonderful blog! We all have a lot to be thankful for, regardless of what are our challenges are.
