The Attitude of Gratitude


This past year being grateful to God for his many blessings has rescued me in more ways than one. I have been facing many different challenges of recent times that could have stolen my joy and peace of mind. But thanks to a very supportive family and church, my kids and I have been very fortunate. Sometimes we can feel alone and not sure how to deal with life as it happens. I have found that journal-ling has been good for me, as I wrote my thoughts both good and bad, I begun to be grateful for not only the messes of life, but have respect for hard times that cause us to become stronger in our thinking and our resilience.

Journal-ling has also included writing scriptures that inspire me and give hope, when hope is low. I am now dedicating a small notebook to scriptures that has become a lifeline in the pass year of my separation from my spouse. I am sure being able to have time to myself, to write songs, prayers etc. has given me the strength to face each day and most of all to find myself again.

Thanksgiving Table Inspiration



 It's been a hectic couple of weeks for me, so virtually no blogging has taken place but the holidays do warrant some much needed inspiration. Here are some tables-capes that caught my eye.



Candles make everything bright and warm and I love to include them in making a tablescape inviting. Below I love the height that tall twigs have in creating drama, whether you use fairy lights or a more rustic theme, it's sure to be a conversation piece. So as we make our final shopping trips, make your tablescape as unique as you and after all the trimmings are done, relax and enjoy a great meal with loved ones this season.
