A Month of Sundaes!

Several times a year, I practice 30 Days of Gratitude, and everyday I post something I am personally grateful for. Some days, indeed, it is harder than others but therein lies the challenge. Abundance is found in Gratitude.

I have posted these, Dear Reader, so that you may be inspired to remember the abundance in your own life. Be blessed, always.
