Happy World Gratitude Day this Sunday, September 21, 2014
"The secret we’ve discovered: All things are possible when you develop an attitude of gratitude. Even in the darkest moments…that is the time you need to stop and say, "Thank you, thank you for the strength, the courage it will take, the resilience, the change I am hoping for, and for the blessings that will help me come out the other side," because, as hard as this trial or lesson is, you promise yourself to look for the small moments, the simple solutions, and notice the blessings that continue to surround you even in the toughest times." —Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons, The Grateful Life
"When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways—either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength."

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain."

"'Love in Every Stich' is a powerful narrative in gentle language that captures the healing magic of knitting…If you read this book, you may come to accept that healing is an underlying principle of the universe. And that, in itself, is a powerful thing."

Everyday, we’re asked to listen for the One Heart we’re all a part of. When we can, our connection and compassion are renewed and our resilience is strengthened. In truth, integrity is the Universal and very personal practice of being completely who we are.
Each time we are that authentic, we love another piece of the One Nameless Heart back together. And loving the world back together is at the heart of every soul’s destiny. So living our best life is staying open and committed to living and loving with an open heart.
No one is exempt from the messy and magnificent journey of being human. We don’t arrive, we grow.
"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
