It's a beautiful day ~














It's amazing to me how our own mindset rules our lives.
What we dwell on, what whirls around in that head of ours
each and every minute of the day
sets the tone for our attitudes.

If we continually think of all that we don't have,
all the awful things that have happened in the past,
all the mistakes we have made,
all the wrongs that have been done to us...
we will continue to suffer and
be absolutely miserable human beings.

BUT...

If we can simply change our thought processes and
take back the power over our minds
{especially with prayer and thanksgiving}
then dwell on the blessings we have,
the goodness we have experienced in our lives,
the beautiful people that cross our paths
each and every day,
and embrace the fact that we are truly loved
by our friends, our family and most of all
by the Lord above,
We will view each day as a precious gift...
and we can truly be happy souls!!!!

Today I know I am loved,
I know I am blessed,
I know how truly thankful I am...
It really IS a beautiful day!








Wishing you a BEAUTIFUL Friday my dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn
