"Most of us miss out on life's big prizes. The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys. But we're all eligible for life's small pleasures. A pat on the back. A kiss behind the ear. A four-pound bass. A full moon. An empty parking space. A crackling fire. A great meal. A glorious sunset. Hot soup. Cold beer. Don't fret about copping life's grand awards. Enjoy its tiny delights. There are plenty for all of us."-United Technologies Corporation advertisement
I soooo agree with that! I'm thankful for the new friends I have made this year. I'm amazed by the human spirit and the capacity to love. I have made friends that I may never meet in the flesh that have still managed to bring an abundance of joy into my life. We embrace our shared interests and some of us find a deeper place in one another's lives. I'm looking forward to what 2009 may bring my way!
