50 Shades of Gratitude

I saw this card and thought of dear Mother Nature who has bestowed so many experiences on our Jersey Shore lately.  I thought you might like the giggle of this card because it reminded me of the snowman my sons made yesterday.  It also reminded me of the gift of gratefulness that she has given to us ~ be thankful that we’re here, we’re healthy and we’re alive ~ and for everything else!  Do you practice gratitude everyday?  It’s a must!

Perhaps you need a bit of help with it?  Well, I’ve been holding out on you with a post that I knew would come in the right time.  I think today’s the perfect opportunity to reblog one of my favorite blogger’s posts from World Gratitude Day which was September 21st.  Paul’s wonderful gratitude quotes and his blog will help you to find gratefulness wherever you roam.  Take a moment to click on his link on this Thank God it’s Friday!

50 Shades of Gratitude.

So please enjoy and be grateful!

Thank you Paul Mark Sutherland at GYA Today!


I Am Collecting Stories in My Life!

I AM Collecting Stories in My Life!

As I said yesterday, we all have a story to tell ~ we’ve all had trials and tribulations in our lives which affect us.  It doesn’t have to be a cancer diagnosis that changes your life ~ although that is what happened to me.  It can be the loss of someone or something important to you, it can be health issues, family issues, friend issues, money issues, natural disasters…there’s a myriad of difficulties that we can have on our ‘story board’ which have affected our lives.

But something almost magical happens when you can experience the difficulties, keep walking and come out the other side with intimate knowledge of beliefs, your spirit, your strength and most of all ~ yourself.

Since I began my work with SendOutCards, I’ve met so many different people and heard their stories…heartfelt, inspiring stories which I am honored in knowing.  Since I began my blog in earnest recently, I’ve begun to meet others as well ~ and I am loving it.

I recently started to Twitter which amuses my family.  I am learning slowly the ins and outs of it ~ what I love though is collecting the snippets of wisdom which enter my Twitter Feed ~ quotes, feelings, snapshots of other peoples’ stories…links to their stories.

It’s simply yet another reminder that we are all connected:  even electronically!  I was blessed to have been ‘retweeted’ a few times recently and I was so honored that someone thought my post was worthy of repeat.  Thank you for reading my posts ~ please know that I am grateful for all of your kindnesses ~ and I am touched by your stories as well!

You’re reading my stories, but this is not a one-sided chat my friends.

Please take the time to tell us your story.

Sharing with caring is a blessing.

I share because I care.
