Quote for the Day: Melody Beattie (Gratitude)

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 meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and create […]

Quote for the Day: President Theodore Roosevelt (Failing to Success)
