In 2012 we challenged you to write 12 letters of Gratitude to people that influenced your life. Many of you did this and wrote amazing stories of the experience.
This year 2013 we are focusing on BEING PRESENT. This is your life. Each day is a gift. You can't turn in yesterday for more time. So make the most of each day and continue to be grateful and embrace life! Be Present! We are changing the world...ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Little things...

Today I had to run by the grocery store to get bandaids.  Yesterday's gardening venture was wonderful, but left my broken open blister hurting.  While I was there I peeked into the candy isle.  I had something in mind and I FOUND IT! was on sale.  My nephew is serving a mission in the Philippines and occasionally he will write home requesting something.  Mostly what he asks for are sweet and sour candies which he evidently cannot get there.  And the last couple letters he has mentioned how much he loves those strings that are sweet/sour.  I was so happy to find them in several flavors.  I grabbed several packages.  It is such a small thing but sometimes it is the little things that get us through the days.  When I get to the end of a hard day a cup of hot chocolate or some herbal tea help melt away the struggles of the day.  That is such a little thing too, but it helps so much, makes such a difference.  For me, the little things are often the things that matter most, kisses from my children and sweetheart, hugs, milk mustaches, laughter, picnics, music playing in the back ground of my life...all these things add up to the journey...I am grateful for my little journey, in my little piece of heaven.

Make it a great day!  Only YOU can!
