Over the last 2 months or so things have happened with my family that have left me feeling stretched to the limits. I confess that on some of the days I would forget something that I thought had become a habit and that’s gratitude.

Gratitude per Oxford dictionary stats “The quality of being thankful, readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”

What a great meaning!! We all tend at times to forget that real kindness starts at home so to speak. So for  me I will be more kind to myself and give thanks for the smallest thing. The next 30 days I will do a word a day.

Today’s word is smell…and the smell that I am grateful for is the sweet smell of rain!

I will keep that in my thoughts this day, when I start to forget to be thankful I will take in a long breath and remember the wonderful aroma of rain.

I started gwyns day 1 as a way for me to share the awesome way God can heal, restore and give a wonderful life full of purpose and joy. My greatest passion is my family but also helping others . With this blog I hope to share uplifting quotes and stories for a healthy mind body and soul life style, as well as fun with crafts and recipes. Here is my mantra and the whole reason for the name of this blog, what a great reminder that every day is a brand new day we can start fresh and do better.
