“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” —Willie Nelson
That was true for me as well. I started writing down about ten years ago things I was grateful for. I made and still make myself look for 5 things a day that I am grateful for. Some days are easy and some days are hard. You know what - it changed ME. My whole life turned around and I became a happier and more positive person. Like all things - it is a choice to do or not to do. One little change can make a huge difference over time.

I wish people would make up their minds - is coffee good for us or not!?
Happy Birthday Louis Braille - from Wikipedia -
Louis Braille became blind at the age of 3, when he accidentally stabbed himself in the eye with a stitching awl, one of his father's workshop tools. Braille's other eye went blind because of sympathetic ophthalmia.
