“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.

We weren’t so lucky when a tornado hit our 1st house in 2002!!)

So, I’m trying to find the calm withing the storm by visiting a few sites for inspiration and strength on my work breaks (although of course then I’m feeling guilty like I’m procrastinating!!) I enjoyed this article:
