Gratitude Unlocks the Fullness of Life

Simple Abundance Entry for January 14th

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

~Melody Beattie

an excerpt from Sarah Ban Breathnach's book, Simple Abundance.

Happiest Friday!! Are you ready for the weekend?

I can not believe how quickly this week zipped by! WOW! But it's all good!

I haven't forgotten your texture freebie... I hope you can wait til tomorrow.... I will be back with that! I promise...

I just had to pop in and share a little mouse over action... It's been forever since I've done that.

Mouse over the image above to see the original. I used yesterday's FramedWhite from the Edge Texture Collection in three different blend modes, screen, multiply and soft light.

That's all for now, my friends...  short and sweet...  

Love & Gratitude.... xxo, Kim

Beautiful image Kim. Love the mouse over images.
I'm familiar with Melodie Beattie. She does has
some very inspirational books out there.
I signed up for Photoshop Essentials and the Art of Textures so I'm very
excited to get busy again/still.
Thanks so much for all your fine teachings.
