Day 28:

Wow, SUPER busy day texting, emailing, phone calls and meetings.  Not to mention, cooking supper, a bit of cleaning and some college work.  

Met with a committee of ladies from our church Heartstrings Ministry early evening.  I will recommend the best pumpkin latte ever from Panera Bread, Fairmont.  Ask for it in a ceramic mug and be sure to get it with the whipped cream.  Save your calorie counts somewhere else.  If you are going to splurge, I suggest with this great tasting drink.  Sorry Starbucks, I love you but this latte has you beat.

Some years ago now, I remember going to a follow up doctor's appointment in Galveston to get the results of what I thought could be a malignant cancer.  Getting the news that I was actually alive and well, I decided to go to one of my favorite shops on the strand and I purchased a book,  "The Art of Abundance".  I was ever so thankful and this book helped me express and realize how abundant my life really was.  Here is a one page from this book:

"The art of abundance is not about greed or selfishness.  The art of abundance is about celebrating life right now, this minute.  It is a way of looking at the potential your life holds-the little blessings to be thankful for now and the gifts that God wants to give you, if your'll open your heart to receive them.  It's being enthusiastic about life every day, not just on the rare occasions when everything seems to be going your way.

"Write in your heart that every day is the best day
of the year." 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Look and listen.  What are the sounds of your life today?  The swish of water from a faucet.  Sweet silence. The clink and tinkle of ice in a glass. 

Blessing all around you.  Don't overlook every small moment of blessings and a chance to give gratitude today.

Have a blessed day!
