{Tuesday Thought}


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.

That is my favorite saying. I painted it and it hangs in my kitchen to remind me to be grateful every day. I wish you an amazing day!
