Thankfulness That Last For More Than A Moment

"Gratitude is the memory of the heart."  ~Jean Baptiste Massieu, translated from French

This has been a year overflowing with things to be thankful for. I could say that one of the memories that is the expression of my gratitude, is witnessing first hand one of the most amazing tours of the year.  That however would only scratch the surface of what I would classify as a most cherished memory.

"If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness.  It will change your life mightily."  ~Gerald Good

My most cherished memories would have to be of the extremely warm comradery  that has been and continues to be shared between Chayanne's fans around the globe. I have memories of the pictures, tweets, text messages, Facebook and Myspace posts that fans from the Unites States to China posted of their favorite moments of "No Hay Imposibles.

My personal favorite memory, would have to be meeting Chayanne for the very first time. What made meeting him so special isn't getting an up close and personal glace and his staggering good looks. It was being able to meet the person who through his music has given me so many wonderful moments. 

Chayanne~ Thank you for all the time, passion, and energy that you have given over this past year. Please give our thanks to your wonderful family for sharing you with us in the many years prior, this year and in the many years to come. We know you're already working on you new album, and so we are thankful for the sweet anticipation that is to come. On a personal note, I want to thank you for being the catalyst for my creativity, my "Muse".

Every year I like to take the time to let all of you know how very thankful I am for each and every one of you. Those of you that I know and those of you that as of yet I have not had the pleasure of knowing. I think I can speak for myself and all the ladies of the Caja when I say that we are thankful for all of your support, comments and feedback that you continue to give to us on a daily basis.

I'm most thankful for my family, my children and my sisters in the cause, Bariloche, Fantasia Chayane, Candela Spirit, and La Guerita Caprichosa.....It's just getting ready to get REALLY good.

With that said, being thankful is not reserved for this one day of the year, true thankfulness will leave it's mark until the end of eternity. If you haven't done so already, acknowledge your blessings and be thankful.


"Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all."  ~William Faulkner
