>Little moments of joy

      No Comments on >Little moments of joy

>Today was a pretty good day.  Unexpected little gifts from the universe came into my life.  These things don’t mean much to you, but they are little moments of joy for me.  The first was when I saw my favorite donut at the grocery store.  They usually have a chocolate covered old fashioned donut, but this time it had sprinkles. … Read more »

>No Really, Thank You

      No Comments on >No Really, Thank You

>Thanksgiving, my second favorite holiday, is pretty much skipped over by most retailers except for a gracious nod from grocery stores and restaurants.  Maybe for the rest of the month, I’ll write one thing each day for which I am thankful.  Cliche it might be, but I’ll bet it will put me in a better mood. Speaking of cliche, since… Read more »
