I am grateful for the tale of two wolves.

One evening, an elderly
cherokee brave told his
grandson about a battle that
goes on inside people.

        He said "my son, the battle is
between two 'wolves' inside us all.
One is evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow,
regret, greed, arrogance,
self-pity, guilt, resentment,
inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and ego.

   The other is good.
 It is joy, peace love, hope serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence,
empathy, generosity,
truth, compassion and faith."

        The grandson though about
it for a minute and then asked
his grandfather:

"Which wolf wins?..."

   The old cherokee simply replied,
"The one that you feed."

I am grateful for good laughs.

Oops! Elizabeth Cramer accidentally launched her 6-month-old baby during a photo shoot in California last month

I am just grateful that the baby is okay because every time
I look at this photo I bust a gut. 

Family photo goes awry; no babies were harmed

2013 has been a hard year

Tonight I was prompted to read through my gratitude blog.  With each entry I felt like my old self was speaking to my current self saying, "You can do this, look how amazing you are, look what you can accomplish, look what you have learned, and look what you have to offer!"   I know the old me isn't gone, she just had a hard year, but I am ready to invite her back.  I like her.
