With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

April 8th - thankful for today

Every day you can give yourself the gift of an 'attitude of gratitude.’  Instead of spinning your wheels in an old way of thinking, each day is a chance to reframe and look at things in a different way.  Thankfully we don't have to hold on to the past, but we get a new beginning every single day!

Every morning starts a new page in your story. Make it a great one today.

Every morning, I thank God for the fabulous day He has granted me.  There may be some not so good events in your day, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be grateful for this new day.  

This morning we have snow on the ground here in my part of the world.  The view from the front porch looks much like the very first picture in today's post.  A few short days ago every thing was looking like spring and the daffodils were blooming.   We really don't know what each new day may bring our way.

If your life seems dull and you have become blasé, it is time to inject some gratitude. Too often we take our surroundings, comforts and family for granted.

Every day is a new day and a fresh start to learn, grow, develop your strengths, heal yourself from past regrets or hurts, and move forward older and wiser. 

Yesterday ended last night, today is a brand new day. And it's yours.

Zig Ziglar

Happiness is a choice and we have the choice every morning,  Every sunrise brings hope to our hearts and every sunset teaches us to be better and value the time we have. A sure way to boost your daily mood is to list the things you are thankful for. 

 I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.

It is so true every day we are given a new start and every day we open up our eyes is a gift from God. Your keeping track of what you are grateful for is a great way to keep that attitude of gratitude alive :)

It is great you can show good attitude and spring flowers and snow is your gift! Knowing you, you are thankful for the water for spring growth.

Love from down here in the woods. We are supposed to drop below freezing tonight ourselves.

Have a great weekend!


A spring snowstorm is expected here overnight, so I will join you in that less than spring view. This quote made me smile a BIG smile. "Yesterday ended last night, today is a brand new day. And it's yours."

I was grumpy this morning about the snow ... but truth be told I am also grateful to have it. We need the moisture PLUS when there's snow on the ground there's no mosquitoes!!! YAY!!!

It was beautiful here today. Also, I love Eleanor. She has said some profound things. I love the one that says No one can make you feel infirm or without your permission.
