amazing shot
 
May Blessings Shine Down Upon You... Glen Canyon, Utah
It seemed everywhere she went that day,
Signs that even she couldn't miss abounded;
Reminding her that she was, indeed blessed.
And there was really nothing more to do about it than be grateful. 
Which indeed, she was.
--------------------------------------------------------
I've been on a journey of late, thinking about a plethora of things. It's the time of year when I slow and and review where I've been... and create a vision for where I want to go. I've been counting my blessings. Alot. What a year it's been!
One of the things I'm so incredibly grateful for is all of you - and for G+.

A young photographer asked me today if he should explore G+ in addition to other social media he was investing time in. I told him absolutely yes! And then went on to explain why I felt that way. It has nothing to do with "this is better than that"... but it has everything to do with our community here. The way we look forward - not backward, support one another, team up on causes and projects, spark new ideas, teach each other all kinds of amazing things, put on shows, stand for something we passionately believe in. And we have the tools here to do all that! 

So, among the many blessings in my world, this is one of the most amazing to me. You, me, G+. What a team. 

I just wanted you to know that. I don't take a single second of any of this - or us - for granted.
I am indeed, blessed. And incredibly grateful.
I don't need a holiday to remind me, either.
Hugs to all!

If you need urgent cash - use this company for fast loans. Otherwise, if you are not really dying - avoid payday loans, they're really costly. #unsharpsaturday   #streetsaturday   #money   #finance   #frugal   #debt   #loans   #survival

New York city policeman buys a homeless man a pair of boots !

#sothisischristmas   #christmas   #helpingothers   #euromaestro  

The photograph of Officer DePrimo, 25, kneeling to help the man, was taken by an Arizona tourist and posted to Facebook by the Police Department this week.

Jennifer Foster of Florence, AZ was visiting Times Square with her husband Nov. 14 when they saw a shoeless man asking for change. She writes, “Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him. The officer said, ‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man. The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching. I have been in law enforcement for 17 years. I was never so impressed in my life. 

Read about the NYPD story.

Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas

The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
