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.

So as we face the Holidays, let's take the time to show gratitude to love ones.



  1. I think I'm finally going to start that gratitude journal. It is so easy to lose sight of what I DO have and focus only on what I want. xx hugs xxx

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

holiday outfit inspiration

Hello everyone, are some you still trying to find that Thanksgiving outfit. here are some of my holiday picks for the season. I adore the Sigrid Blouse from Anthropologie that just screams holiday season, it's flattering in any size, when paired with Black leggings or skinny jeans. I am also a big fan of draping and the Sirpo pullover in red is indeed one of my favs for  all holiday parties.

Also from Anthropologie is this gorgeous Berlin midi skirt and printed Jacqui dress is divine. So I hope this post might give you a few more ideas as Thanksgiving draws near. Cheers to the Hols my lovelies.
