“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?’ – William Arthur Ward

Time passes quickly. It’s hard to believe the holiday season is almost here again, knocking at your doorstep. But before the holiday season gets here, now is a good time to reflect on the people who have helped you in big and small ways throughout the year.

Right now is also the perfect time to express your gratitude to family and friends who are special; the very people who have been with you through thick and thin– the very people you will be toasting the holiday season with soon.

Finding Joy in the Simple Things

posted by Alex Blackwell

simple things in life

“The most simple things can bring the most happiness.” – Izabella Scorupco

If you tune in to television, magazines, movies, billboard ads – you will hear messages and see images that tell you what you need to have, or be, to enjoy life. Things like:
– New luxury automobiles
– Big, new house
– Vacation on some expensive, exotic island
– Drinking $1000/bottle champagne
– Designer shoes and bags
– Signature perfumes
– Top of the line gadgets
…the list goes on and on and on.

So you set your life in pursuit of these material possessions. You spend days and nights on how to have more money so you can buy more things. Finally, after many stressful months (or even years) you have saved enough to buy what you have convinced yourself you need.
