Motivational Mondays…Holiday Edition II

As you grow older your gift list gets smaller
the things you really want can’t be bought.

Happy (belated) Hannukah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa
…and happy anything you celebrate!

It occurred to me that my post last week on the gift of gratefulness didn’t include my expression of  what I’m grateful for (although I’ve written about it quite a bit!)

I am overwhelmingly grateful for my amazing kids & kids-in-law, my family, my friends…and my neighbors & team-mates who are my friends!  I’m also grateful to each of you that reads this little blog that I love writing.  Some weeks and posts are more inspired than others, but I enjoy every minute of the creative process.

You cannot direct the wind, but you can adjust the sails!
