Happy Thankful Birthday

Hi everybody. I love a good party. At least I like being invited, thinking about what I’m going to wear, who’s going to be there, and what’s being served.  To this wonderful event, I’ll be typing in my pajamas, hoping to “see” and reconnect with many friends, and enjoying a heaping helping of gratitude and positivity.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, almost a year, but my last one was in this very blog hop.


If you click on the photo above, it should take you to a Gratitude meditation that asks you to look at your life and be thankful for things in your life; the people, your basic needs, the lessons you have learned


Ok,  I’m sorry.  I began this post over a week ago and I just can’t finish.  I practice gratitude every day and that’s all I want to share.  My mind is scattered – like a gadfly – it darts here and there and everywhere, my focus is limited right now.  I’ll leave you with this:

Happy Birthday, TToT.


Ten Things of Thankful – A Flood

When you can find gratitude in difficult situations, you are more open to the positive things in life.

Hi.  Remember me?  This week’s Six Sentence Story is a combination of the last two cues.  I began writing it last week when the cue was transform.  When I saw this week’s cue, I knew it was a sign that I could continue, and as the quote says, I could write until the end.  Linking with GirlieOnTheEdge and the other Sixers who gather each week (or every other) to share stories.
