gratitude week

Honoré invited us to play on Michelle’s blog for a week of Gratitude. I’m IN: its my One Little Word!

Today I wrote how grateful I am for having the words and creativity to tell a story. And I worked through some fears that had caused me to tuck a project away and dub it the hibernating bear.

I woke the bear today. I found the gift inside. I put pen to paper and felt the warp and pull of gratitude shifting the earth beneath me. Gratitude can do that. It’s a superpower.

  3. I too believe gratitude is a superpower. And big hugs to you as you journey with your mama. So much love to you.

  4. Bless you friends for your heartfelt comments. My mom’s final year with dementia was filled to the brim with challenges and gifts; she died five years ago.
    My idea for an Alzheimer’s storybook has been blooming and growing over the years. It’s time. It will make her do a happy dance!
