Gratitude takes the ordinary and makes it extrodinary

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgiving, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. ~William Arthur Ward

My heart is full and feeling very grateful for so much. Lot’s of really great things happening here and also doing things a little different so that I can find some soul space. Some quiet time and time to plan what’s next.

I know I say it a lot, but if you’re anything like me, I need to hear it and be reminded.

Gratitude leads to joy.

When we’re feeling down and grumpy… stopping and taking stock of all the things we have to be grateful for… changes us from the inside out. Before you know it… joy creeps in and things are lighter… the burdens don’t seem so heavy and we have something to give others.
