Weekend Challenge - Gratitude

Hello one and all. You are looking especially lovely today!

I am your host for this Weekend Challenge. I've been feeling a little out of sorts lately so I thought I'd use this challenge to remind myself, as well as anyone else who may need it, that gratitude can magnify our blessings.

I have a list of 49 quotes which are about Gratitude and Thanksgiving. If you would like to prompted from this list, simply list the number(s) of the quotes - 1 to 49 - you would like and I will provide them.

Go forth and create!! And be grateful for the opportunity. That's what I have to remember!

Have a great, productive weekend!

#14 for you!

14. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie

Go forth and create!
