Thankful Thursday: Gratitude - What are YOU Thankful for? #GRATITUDE #TT

It has been said that "Gratitude creates it's own attitude" and with all of the negativity that circles around us daily, sometimes we all need to take a step back, perhaps only a half-step back and pause - take a deep breath - reflect and begin again. 

Take a moment to identify at least one thing that's good in our lives. 

While some days we may find that our plate is running over with reasons to smile, for many of us, there are far more reasons to count for being tired, stressed, frazzled, and wanting to find some kind of disconnect from everything.  Regardless of our current situation or circumstance, we have all been there at one point or another.  To be brutally honest, we've all been there, and it's very likely, at some point we'll all be there again.  

If you're one of the lucky ones who hasn't been "there," it is likely that someone you know, or someone close to you has been..  so you know what I'm talking about.. 

In any case..  

I'd like to declare this THANKFUL THURSDAY ~ and would like to encourage you to take pause.  Think of one thing that you are grateful for today, and share it. 

Sometimes that one thing, may be the reason you wear your smile for the rest of the day.  Sometimes that "smile" you share, will be the reason that someone else begins to smile too. 

A smile costs little but affords so much.  Give one away. :)

On Death and Dying - Nanu Nanu.

Am I the only one listening to the press conference concerning Robin William's death and shaking my head?

Ruminating on What NOT to Say..

This post started out as a response to a cousin's Facebook post this morning.  Where many times I'll come across something and think -- ooh there's a blog post in there somewhere -- time has been pretty short lately, so often those pearls get cast aside and forgotten about until the next time.  This one resonated on a soft-spot though, and I thought I'd jump right in.

Opportunity Knocks ~ August 7, 2014

It has been some time since my last post, but there haven't been too many submissions until this week.  This either means you are all keeping very busy this summer, which is probably a very good thing! 

Before too long the kids will be back to school and summer vacation will be over for another season ~ enjoy it while you can! 

Does anyone know of a local school or group that still collects Campbell's soup labels for fundraising?  Please let me know!

Do you have an opportunity to share? Please send it to! 

Thank you for supporting me in my efforts to support all the wonderful things happening in our communities.  

Cheers!  ~ Tammy
