Tis the Season for Gratitude

I've been running a 30 day Attitude of Gratitude challenge on Facebook where the participates have posted a declaration of thanksgiving each day.  We are almost to the end of the 30 day run.  It has been a delight.  I've enjoyed reading the posts and it certainly has made me more mindful of giving thanks each day for all that I have in this wonderful life.

So, I have gift for everyone.  Something to help remind us to continue to build a gratitude attitude.

Starry Starry Night "Vincent" by Don McLean

I love the song. This is a great slide show of Vincent Van Gogh work to go with it. Take a couple minutes and enjoy the combo.

Thanks for stopping by!

Colorful Skies

"Silhouette Sky #45" by Dee Overly

Chameleon ribbons wrap this present,
offered each an every day.
It decorates the wrapping,
for all eyes to view the display.

Sometimes white, sometimes hues of pink,
then sometimes at night the decorations wink.
The colors of the sunrise entwined with the clouds,
an awestruck painting given to the crowds.

Sometimes the colors come together,
in a delicious array of light.
Bright and cheery in the sun,
dark and seductive at night.

Opening this present is as easy a thing,
as flowers that open their petals
at the coming of spring.
Beauty shines as the dancing color settles.

A lovely part of the universe,
in this the birds love to fly,
the glorious reflection,
of the majestic sky.

Poem by April Self
