Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

” Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much.For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of  appreciation, our neighbours build their philosophy of life ” – Archibald Joseph Cronin

Thankful. Wow, this is a small word for so much interpretations.

I’m thankful to hundreds of things, but first of all I’m thankful to people. I’m thankful to people who are here with me, who help me in good or bad moments or just who make me think that this world can be a beautiful place. This apply to my friends, to my parents, to my sisters, to the man who held me the door this morning and to the woman who helped me find my way in the narrow streets of Barcelona, to the farmers who provide me food everyday, to all my long term relationships or to strangers. I’m thankful to people to whom I rely on and who rely on me.

This is why I chose this photo. Everyone here holds on to one another, and each person can say “thank you” to the person next to him or her. It seems to me that this is how our society works, or at least should word. Because, when we think about it, we all depend on others.
