learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself,
and know that everything in life has purpose.
there are no mistakes,
no coincidences,
all events are blessings given to us to learn from.
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross  

gratitude, like faith, is a muscle.
the more you use it,
 the stronger it grows,
 and the more power you have to use it on your behalf.
if you do not practice gratefulness,
its benefaction will go unnoticed,
and your capacity to draw on its gifts will be diminished.
to be grateful is to find blessings in everything,
this is the most powerful attitude to adopt,
 for there are blessings in everything.
Alan Cohen

fall season is underway.
and our blessings are many.
beginning with our three children.
...find your blessings in everything...
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

a shadowy cup
brimming with caffeine blessings
to ease me awake


My shadow and I are very best friends;
We walk hand in hand, though the sidewalk ends.

No matter the time of day or of night,
My shadow and I will always stick tight.

We don’t even think of drifting apart,
For shadow and I are one soul and one heart.

To have such a friend is heaven, you see,
For I love my shadow, and shadow loves me.

I would definitely cringe at some of those tackles!

Love the quote, as I do believe that everything has purpose, and there are no coincidences..

Thanks for visiting me today.
