No matter what's going on in life on any given day, whether big or inconsequential, there is always something for which to be thankful.
When we switch our focus from the negative to the positive for even a few moments good things happen. The Bible says that a merry heart does good like a medicine so happiness, even in small doses, is good for our health.
Today I'm thankful that when I got up this morning the sky was filled with a beautiful apricot glow streaked with lavender. A show just for me. I got a couple of projects finished and sent off to their respective next steps this morning so I'm gratified that those are complete. My house is warm when it's cold outside and if I get chilly I just have to nudge that thermostat up and the whole place warms up a few more degrees.
I didn't have to cook supper tonight because my sister invited my husband and me over to her house. Did I mention that she's a gourmet cook (I'm talking Five Star)? A lovely time was had by all.
I'm nearly finished my new Book Cover Magic website and I'm thrilled with how it's turning out. There is so much satisfaction in doing a job well and creating beauty.
I'm thankful for the beautiful daughters that God gave me to raise and who have turned into wonderful, caring, successful women.
Once you get started it's hard to stop. A positive outlook and a heart of thanksgiving change everything.
Where I share creative ideas, uplifting thoughts, and spread sweetness to make life pretty.
