Centennial Celebration


              I celebrate each Saturday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build - This week, ONE HUNDRED TIMES everyone has celebrated. WOW! There are many others who celebrate, too. Come join us!          Tweet at #CelebrateLu

              We wouldn't have started without Ruth Ayres, so thank you Ruth for keeping on, sharing wise words, being a good person in our lives for whom we are so grateful.

           
Gratitude

I haven’t kept a count,
I know I’ve missed a few,
but celebrating every week’s
like being atop a mountain peak
because of you, and you, and you,
and you, you, you, you, too, and you.

It’s true!
                                                                                      Linda

  13. Linda, I just posted and left Ruth a message about having an attitude of gratitude and here I come to your post and find your poem. It is filled with positivity and delight. Gratitude is a natural emotion when a positive framework is the norm.
