all we need is love

last night as a family we watched the movie "i am sam". 

i remember watching it back in 2001 when it first came out, but i had forgotten the full impact of this amazing movie.  i cried through its entirety and thought about all the things in my life that made me who i am today.  feeling heartache and learning to see life through the beautiful eyes of my daughter have made me so thankful.  i am so thankful for so many things in this wonderful life, but finding the ability to be thankful wasn't easy.  this has been a year of growth, emotion, heartache, stress, tears and joy all wrapped up into a new found life of acceptance, love, more love, and more tears. 

so, today on this day of giving thanks i think of the beautiful people out there who make a difference in our world and live life filled with love and happiness, just like "sam".


  1. This is beautiful, Kelley. There is nothing quite like the heart-opening feeling of gratitude...and holding loved ones close.

    You have a beautiful, sensitive, open heart that spills over to everyone you are in contact with. You are one blessed woman.

    I hope you and your sweet family spill over with love for each other today. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. Eat, drink, be merry!

  2. Thank you. I'll watch it again soon.


your comments make my day...i love hearing from you...please say hello...
