I love this time of year! Here are a few quotes I’ve collected about being thankful.
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” –Marcel Proust
“Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.” –Seneca
“Life without thankfulness is devoid of love and passion. Hope without thankfulness is lacking in fine perception. Faith without thankfulness lacks strength and fortitude. Every virtue divorced from thankfulness is maimed and limps along the spiritual road.” –John Henry Jowett
“When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.” –Elie Wiesel
“God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.” –Izaak Walton
“A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.” –Henry Ward Beecher
“Love wholeheartedly, be surprised, give thanks and praise–then you will discover the fullness of your life.” –Brother David Steindl-Rast
“If you can’t be thankful for what you receive, be thankful for what you escape.” –Unknown
“Gratitude is the heart’s memory.” –French Proverb
“A single grateful thought toward heaven is the most complete prayer.” –Gotthold Lessing
Have I told you lately how much I love helping my clients share their passion with the world? Well this project was no exception, when Holly Wojahn and her daughter, Kirby Fopma came to us to design the website for their new book, I was thrilled.
Kirby and Holly wrote a delightfully delicious children’s book called Bon Bon Voyage, in which the title character, Bridget ventures through a world of yummy desserts. In addition to the Seuss-esque prose, each page is a visual treat with Holly’s hand-painted illustrations. As if that wasn’t enough the book comes with a song collection of great tunes written and performed by the Wojahn Brothers, Holly’s brothers (& Kirby’s uncles). Bon Bon Voyage is a fun book that deserves an equally whimsical, fun website.
We had fun creating this website and we hope you’ll have fun checking it out!
Here are some clips of the music from the book:
So, what are you waiting for? Go check out the book…it would make a great Christmas present!
