Gratitude Day 11: Art


Every Artist was first an amateur...
Ralph Waldo Emerson

As we pause to thank our veterans today, I'm reflecting on my career in nursing..

And yes, when I first started I was but an amateur...
And yet..for an amateur, I had some wonderful opportunities come my way!

Thank you to all those who continue to answer the call 
to serve in our nation's military.

Gratitude Day 3


Walt Disney....famous for many things
but since today's gratitude word is dream...
this one pops into my head:
All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them

I am grateful for my parents who raised my sister and I pursue our dreams...
even if they themselves didn't quite understand our choices.

Gratitude Challenge: Day 2


It has been said that a good laugh brings sunshine in a home.   

How very grateful I am for these two rays of sunshine in my house.   Ok, I admit, at 17 and 15, there are days when their antics bring more tears than laughter...
but overall, they are indeed the light and laughter of our home!
