"Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgiving, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." - William Arthur Ward

Found this quote on a blog I came across yesterday... Awesomely Awake.  It is filled with inspiration for us all, I can't wait to start receiving posts in my email box!

The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty and truth.  The trite subjects of human efforts, possessions, outward success, luxury have always seemed to me contemptible.  -Albert Einstein

"The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service."  -Henry Wandsworth Longfellow

It's mid december and time for me to start thinking about my Christmas shopping.  Every year I am torn about what to do, if anything, for gifts.  This year I have found multiple websites where my purchases will not only make wonderful gifts for all my family and friends but will also give to those in great need.  Check out the links on your left under FOR A BETTER WORLD  My favorite, One Hope Wine.  I am impressed by how much of the proceeds go to the actually charities!  Since almost everyone on my list enjoys wine, this will make the perfect gift and help others in need.
