IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don't keep it a secret. ~Mary Kay Ash

Today I am grateful…

  • to have slept fairly well after a day of my allergies kicking my ass
  • that I will not spend any time in an airport today
  • to watch Belle and Bunny play in the cold and to watch from my warm little comfort zone
  • for a Higher Power that sustains my life and sustains my future
  • that sometimes patterns work together, sometimes not (see below)

Build your life on the firm foundation of true gratitude to God for all His blessings and true humility because of your unworthiness of these blessings. Build the frame of your life out of self-discipline, never let yourself get selfish or lazy or contented with yourself. Build the walls of your life out of service to others, helping others find the way to live. Build the roof of your life out of prayer and quiet times, waiting for God's guidance from above. Build a garden around your life out of peace of mind and serenity and a sure faith. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

My eyes hurt after looking at that pic. I appreciate all my blogger friends. I don't appreciate allergies. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Scott: Another list of things that one takes for granted. I wish for more people like you around.

Can I write to you?

Joy always,
