Whatever obstacles you face in life, face it with a grateful heart
As you grieve over your losses, remember with a grateful heart
You may be heartbroken and hurting, love with a grateful heart
Feeling alone and rejected, find comfort in a grateful heart
For happiness, love, healing, and peace will always find their way to a grateful heart

Many celebrated Mother’s day last weekend.
I enjoyed seeing the poems the flowers the messages of love pouring out all over the internet.
I appreciated the ones I received and especially the one from my daughter.
Why do we celebrate? I imagine everyone has a different reason as to why they do, but for me it’s simple. Celebrating is a way of expressing gratitude and to say thanks for the happiness and meaning someone, something or a moment brings to your life
.We celebrate with gifts, words, food, music, drinks, dance.
We celebrate life love success securities
Not everyone join in celebrations, and some of us are becoming more and more aware of the growing expectations that they can bring, as some celebrations call for spending a little more and giving a little more than kind words or well wishes.
We each have a personal responsibility in the way we respond to celebrations. It is no one’s fault if we overspend or indulge in ways we should not. We should be true to ourselves first in all situations.
If you choose to give much or give little, give it with love because that is the real purpose of celebrating.
Some of us may have lost our way when it comes to gifts, but it is never too late for us to think again about the reason for giving.
I speak of no particular celebration when I say all that matters is the feeling of togetherness and love that comes from it. People are happier, families closer, there is a sense of excitement in the air, powerful words of kindness, trust, hope, inspiration, peace, togetherness and acceptance fills the air
Can we find something to celebrate about every day? I KNOW WE CAN!

Today I have awoken with such an intense sense of gratitude and happiness. I try to be thankful for all things in my life but all days are never the same.
I realise though that the more I evolve and grow to know myself, the more I learn to love and appreciate myself.
I know the path to happiness and a life of prosperity is within me, and if I love myself and am happy with me the world is a wonderful place.
I am grateful for the love and friendships I have for they give me strength.
I am grateful for the challenges for I know they are opportunities for me to discover myself, so I welcome them.
Today I am crying, not because I am sad, but because I feel such joy that I can hardly contain it.
My truth today is -The world is a wonderful and beautiful place and I am honoured to be a part of it.
Today I share this powerful feeling with everyone in the universe who seek love, for today we are one.
