thanks a million

pve design artwork for the New York Winter Antiques Show via The Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Society circa 1990's.
Today, I am feeling rather Thankful. As we are about to begin the season, with a day of Thanks followed by the hectic Holidays. To do, "shopping, wrapping, giving, socializing, checking one's lists"- check them twice! Know that the smallest most random act of kindness will be appreciated to those in need, even the one who you think has "everything." Give from the heart, a hug, a kiss, a greeting to show your thanks, a letter, a card, a thought. This year, challenging economic times remind us to dig deep, to support a cause and to remind us to never stop to give gratitude.
Thanks a million to each of you. I wish each and everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Well said Patricia. As my girlfriends' daughter would say "back at ya" - it's all in the age group.
I posted some of the beautiful artwork you shared with me from Julian Merrow-Smith.
Thank you for always giving of yourself to many many people.

This is a very thoughtful post Patricia. We do need to dig deep to help others in need-it's what the season is all about. I am thankful to you for your act of kindness yesterday- you saved the day my friend. I love digging-deep and seeing all of the little surprises in your wonderful illustration.

I always enjoy your post. Additionally, though random, that illustration would make really interesting wrapping paper. When I opened the post, that was the first thing I thought of. hmm...
Hope you are enjoying the afterglow of a great meal and time with family!

Yes, yes, YES! Thank you for this post. I volunteer at a small non-profit in Jersey City and we are hurting big time, as many smaller ones are. So sad.

Hello Patricia--the design labeled "Winter Antiques Show" was likely for the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Fair (October) which benefits the Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The Winter Antiques Show is owned by its beneficiary, East Side House Settlement in the South Bronx.
