Gratitude and Inspiration

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
William Arthur Ward

My mom finds the most interesting articles and documentaries to pass my way.  Recently, she told me about Nicky's Family - the story about an Englishman named Nicholas Winton, who worked tirelessly to rescue and transport 669 Czech and Slovak children on the cusp of World War II.  The detail that makes this already unbelievable tale so incredible is that no one (including the children) knew this had taken place. It wasn't until his wife found the documents in the attic fifty years later that the facts fell into place creating a worldwide wave of hope and inspiration.

This is a story of heartbreak, despair, bravery, kindness, and the importance of paying it forward. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and bathe in the gratitude for all we have.  This powerful film will move you to tears but fill you with appreciation and intense pride in the human spirit.

Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends.  I wish you love, comfort and an abundance of yummy food!
