Giving thanks

"Make it a habit to tell people thank you.
To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.
Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you.
Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."
Ralph Marston

I just wanted to take a minute during this thanksgiving weekend to give a shout out to everyone. Thank you for being a part of my life, be it a major role or a brief connection, I am thankful our lives have touched.

Some have heard me relate this before, especially when i sent one of these quartz crystals their way. As you know one of my favorite places to go is Cape May. one of the things it is famous for are Cape May Diamonds. The Kechemeche Indians were the first to find the fascinating and beautiful stones. They believe that these curious stones possess supernatural power bringing success and good fortune.

Earlier settlers stopped at the beaches because they believed diamonds glistened on the shore. These crystals turned out to be white quartz. Naturally you find these rocks in a cloudy murky white state, but Cape May has the right elements, outside forces, to work on these rocks. The break of the waves, the temperature of the water, the salt and grit of sand that effects them and they are transformed.

Just reminds me that we don't reach the shore alone, we are touched by so many. Look around you when you are celebrating this weekend and during the upcoming holidays and remember to thank those that have had on influence on your life. Thank them for helping you become a gem!
