When my children were little, as I tucked them into bed, I always asked them, “What was the best part of this day?”

The idea was, that even on the worst days, good things happen within them, and we will be happier and more grateful people if we train our eyes to see them, and appreciate those sometimes subtle gifts.

In these galleries I want to share with you some of the reasons I am thankful today and everyday.  I am awed and humbled by the people who trust me, and give this photographer the chance to express her creativity, and to capture big and small moments of their lives.  I appreciate you all, and I count you as the “best part of my day.”
