I am taking a queue from my little sis, and couting down to
Thanksgiving with the things that I am grateful for…
As I have been teaching my ‘energy journal’ class, one of
the things that we talk about is the power in feeling gratitude, and that it’s
a bit of ‘free energy’… you don’t have to do anything other than acknowledge
the things you are thankful for, and allow yourself to FEEL that gratitude, and
fill you with good, positive energy to help you plow through your day.
I have so much to be thankful for, and I am in no way going

up. I am grateful that my kids want to be close to me, love to sit on my lap or
next to me (enough to fight over it…LOL). and thankful for a few minutes sitting still on the couch. and it's a comfy couch!
