Feeling GRATITUDE and NOT expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it!
No matter who you are, every single person has something to be grateful for.
By consistently practicing gratitude, it shifts the entire focus of life. Stress dissipates, and a calmness washes over our being.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a lovely place to be. The bliss of the miraculous life we have.
Sixty-Six years ago, these two love birds were married.
I am so grateful for my parents and my siblings as well.
I am fortunate to be the youngest daughter of Dell and JoAnn Tyler – I say that because I was adopted and became part of the family at age two.
Unfortunately, my mother passed away this past week. She was 85 years old. It thrills me to know that she is no longer in pain, and her mind once again is active, and she is full of life.
It is difficult to watch our parents age. For me, at this time as happy as I am that my mother has transitioned through life, I am equally as heartbroken for my father.
He has lost his sweat heart and is deeply grieving.
His own health is deteriorating quickly, and there is no way of knowing how long he will be here to answer my phone calls and hold my hand at chemo appointments.
Please keep my sweet father in your hearts and prayers.
