Gratitude A to Z

      6 Comments on Gratitude A to Z

It’s not uncommon to hear the importance of having an attitude of gratitude and honestly, I’ve been gratitude journaling nearly every day for the last couple of years.

I know I’ve mentioned it before but Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I love the slight chill in the air that makes you want to wear a sweater and hold onto a hot cup of coffee or cider.  And I love how the colors on the leaves change to reds, yellows and oranges. It’s one of the things… Read more »

      Comments Off on A Much Needed Slap in the Face

Sometimes we all just need a slap in the face.  Not literally, so put your paws down!  But a figurative slap in the face; a friendly little reminder.  And this morning I got mine. Despite taking this month to participate in the GratefulSeason, I’m still dealing with the looming procedure coming on Monday and everything that comes with it, both… Read more »
