Giving Thanks & Kindness

Day 10 of 26 Days of Kindness
Happy Thanksgiving to all. If you took a minute to come here and read this, it is much appreciated. Those who follow know that these recent garden and design posts have been dedicated to the 26 days of kindness. Thanksgiving happens to fall on day 10. And on this November 28th, we honor Jesse Lewis. He has a tall order to fill as his day falls on this first, difficult holiday for the Newtown, CT families to face but Jesse seems to be an appropriate pick. He was a brave, heroic little boy who loved riding horses, math and toy soldiers.

Here is the image I have chosen for Jesse. Horses, which he loved, symbolize freedom and strength. The Sunflowers represent tall pride and appreciation. Tesio, the most successful breeder of Thoroughbreds once said this about horses. “A horse gallops with his lungs, perseveres with his heart, and wins with his character.” With all the acts of kindness today, big or small, let this town of Newtown, CT find a bit of healing, strength and perseverance in the very animal, the horse and what it represents to a brave boy who loved these special creatures so much.       

Here is where you can find the event and FB page for the 26 days of kindness. On this first Thanksgiving without their loved ones, do not forget one small act of kindness in honor of Jesse Lewis and the families of Newtown, CT.  To Chris, Jen & Mattie, a special Happy Thanksgiving- my family connection to Newtown, CT.
