Happy Thanksgiving!

For what we have been given, let us be truly grateful… 

 

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” (Epicurus)

  

We spend a lot of time talking about gratitude here at the Martini house. One thing I say often (so often that the mini Martinis can quote me) is this: “from those to whom much is given, much is expected.” (Aka: with great gifts come great responsibilities…). I feel that we have a great purpose in our lives – to share what we have, what we know, what we can with those who have not, know not, can not. 

 

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

  

Gratitude makes what we have enough. Love makes it even more. I hope this day brings a little bit of both your way…
