Day four on my gratitude journey is food.

As I woke up today I thought what food am I grateful for. It came to me quick it’s quite simple, it has to be a donut!! I really enjoy all sorts of food and being a vegetarian I am always on the look out for good, healthy, spicy and with in reason sweet food.

I don’t have them often and it has been years since I made them with my children but these fried dough of confectionery goodness can’t be beat!

I know just a little of the interesting history on these lovely yummiest of fried baked goodness. It goes back to the Romans and Greeks but we can thank the Dutch sailor’s mom that made them for her son’s voyage for becoming the favorite version of the donut.

Oh and I just happen to share the month of June (my birthday month)with national donut day  June 3rd, that’s no coincidence.


Hi, I'm Gwyn a entrepreneur, mom of 2 and a grandma of 2! I had been married for a long time to an abusive alcoholic, this left me feeling broken and forgetting who I really was. 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.
