gratitude and the overflowing cup

Today we went to the bookstore and I got a few books.  One is a book about gratitude.  I have been feeling warm, blessed, happy, and loved lately.  I feel ever so grateful for all the blessings I have in my life, wonderful friends and family.

Here are some quotes I like:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. ~ Melody Beattie

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. ~ Denis Waitley

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.  – Helen Keller

My cup runneth over!


I want to thank each and every one of our family members and friends!  So many people are being kind, supportive, generous, and loving in this process for us.  May all of you be abundantly blessed!
