Sorry it's been a couple days since I posted last. I was having trouble with technology... then I haven't been feeling too well on top of that. don't panic.

Gratitude is a weapon against fear and… Continue reading Developing and Attitude of Gratitude – Day 496
Todays question is what simple things am I grateful for? ... daffodils blooming in the yard. ... soup ... occasional sun peaking through the much needed rain clouds. ... Lilli came home safe and sound. #gratitudesharing during #socialdistancing
Man... with this quarantine stuff the days blend together and I am getting the sense of what "retirement" might be like. With John home I don't know what to do. He is always in the office working and It's hard to do my usual M.O. if I put in headphones I don't know he is… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Days 492, 493, and 494

My study has led me to much self examination and contemplation. I can see how many of us, including myself, are caught in "self-righteous" behavior with "accusing hearts."

I am grateful for our mandatory "down time." I really have used the time to clean up my house and my life. Yesterday was "home-centered" church. It was awesome! Got to play with grand kids including a fire on the back porch, a blue tape race track and hop scotch, and hamburgers. Life is good.
Some how I missed yesterday. Today was a good day. I am grateful that Lilli helped me and we were able to clean the whole house... with bleach. Whatever the germ is, we are ready. I am grateful that John helped me take stuff out of the back of my truck and did a grocery… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 485 and 486

I am… Continue reading Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 484
