When I was a kid and the car would break down (my parents had five kids and one old car), my mom would always say something like, "wasn't it so lucky we weren't on the highway?" or "weren't we lucky the gas station was just down the road?" or "thank heavens nobody was behind us!"
(If it seems like our car was always breaking down-- well, it seemed that way to me, too. The gas gauge didn't work so we also often ran out of gas because we didn't know the tank was empty).
However, as I think back on it now-- what strikes me most was how my mom responded. She didn't send all her energy to everything that was wrong, she immediately got us all to focus on how lucky we were with what had gone right. This is one of the many ways in which my life has been blessed: attitude. (thanks, mom!)
And, above*-- you can see me chatting about the most magical gift I was given last Spring that I absolutely adored: a simple gratitude journal. I have used it everyday-- and, quite selfishly, wanted another-- but asked Amy G to use some of her gorgeous photos from her time at squam to make them available to all of you.
They are now available in the squam store, but only until January 31, 2012.
I do hope you like them. And, that they help you to expand all the blessings in your life.
