and of all of the wonderful gifts he has given us

Robin McLaurin Williams (July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014)

Today, the world lost one of the most beloved entertainers of all time.  He was a very gifted comedian that also proved himself to be an accomplished actor in any role he was given, no matter whether it was comedic, or dramatic.

He inspired millions (myself included) to never let go of our inner child:  To never lose that sense of wonder and magic that so many of us so easily seem to lose touch with as time goes by.  His role as the now-grown Peter Pan in Hook (1991) was a challenge perfectly suited to a man who seemed to embody a sense of ever-lasting youth and adventure.

The brightest light has gone out.  However, no matter how far ahead in time, Robin Williams will be forever missed, but never forgotten.

Just… look at John’s eyes. The wonder in them. The way they are glistening slightly with tears he would never spill. Maybe once upon a time, with Jessica, or before that with… he used to get gifts. But then he changed as a person… and how much do you want to bet this is the first time someone has given him a birthday gift in years. He probably think he doesn’t even deserve one… what with the self proclaimed monster he is. 
And i can’t with how he swallows in the end. Swallows all the words and protests and the gratitude. Because he must think… this is usual for Harold. He has lots of money. Gifts are no big deal for him, and even if my heart is bursting with joy… i can’t burden him with all these unwanted emotions.

But i bet Harold sees it all. In the little thanks. and his heart breaks just like mine does. JOHN REESE DESERVES AND NEEDS ALL THE LOVE OKAY. 

To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us - and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him.
Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.

A Grandfather's Love: Congressman Mike Honda Opens Up About His Transgender Granddaughter

Marsha Aizumi bloggs at Huffpost:

The Congressman said this week:
“As both an individual, and as an educator, I have experienced and witnessed bullying in its many forms. And as the proud jichan, or grandpa, of a transgender grandchild, I hope that my granddaughter can feel safe going to school without fear of being bullied. I refuse to be a bystander while millions of people are dealing with the effects of bullying on a daily basis.” […]

Congressman Honda’s granddaughter will never have to wonder how her grandfather feels about her. She will see it in the work that he does, the hugs he gives, and the eyes that gaze upon her with love. What a gift he has given to her… and to all of us, by extension.

Read the whole story.

The Perfect Gift

With a lot of people spending Halloween out trick-or-treating and dressing up in fancy costumes, let us not forget in all the excitement of today that all amazing and beautiful things come from God. 

Let us take the time today to thank Him for all the blessings He has given us throughout our lives and in the days yet to come. Have a wonderful weekend ahead :D
