Gratitude Mondays


I find doing a gratitude journal rather blasé, to be honest.  It gets tedious.  Not all of us have grandiose things happening to us each and every day – things that make us stop and say, “Wow”.  You know, like winning the lottery, or going on a dream cruise for up to a month, or… Continue reading Gratitude Mondays

Look back – Forget Not His Benefits, O My Soul


I am, at the moment, busy working my way through a lovely little book called Me, Myself and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild.  It’s a delightful book, full of wisdom, and wonderful advice on how to control your thoughts.  This has been a long journey for me and I suspect I will be on this journey… Continue reading Look back – Forget Not His Benefits, O My Soul
