I cannot believe Thanksgiving is just about here!

Did someone push the accelerator button?  Because time seems to be whizzing by at warp speed.

All the more reason to take a few minutes to slow down… breathe… and acknowledge our blessings.

I love this quote and printable from the archives…

“When it comes to life the critical thing is,
whether you take things for granted
or take them with gratitude.”
Gilbert Chesterton

I know you’ll want to download my free gratitude printable, to post at your work station, on the fridge, or even frame and place in a vignette for a constant reminder.
