** It's a Grateful Friday **

♪♫   Just a quick note to mention I've changed my Play List again. If you normally hit your mute button the second you arrive here.....I totally understand! I can't really read and/or write with music playing, either. I like to listen to it as background music as I do filing, de-cluttering, etc.   ♪♫
So, today I'm playing what I call Beautiful Music. You'll hear Vivaldi, Susan Boyle, Beethoven, Michael Buble, and Charlotte Church....just to name a few! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.....but if not, go right ahead and hit that old mute button!

I wasn't feeling very grateful a couple of hours ago, yeah....ME! Can you believe that?! Every now and then, the old "woe is me" comes to visit and it takes me awhile to drop-kick it back out into the atmosphere. Ooops, look out! I hope I managed to send it to the middle of nowhere, where it won't hit anyone!

We all have mini incidents & inconveniences that disrupt our lives. And there's those major issues.....illnesses, accidents, family quarrels, financial problems, and loss of loved ones due to divorce or death. So, occassionally I have to remind myself that no matter what I may be going through at the moment, it is so minor compared to what millions of other people have to deal with....maybe on a daily basis.

Therefore, I've changed my attitude and I'm truly experiencing a "Grateful Friday"! I wish one for you, too!

“When we are grateful for the good we already have, we attract more good into our life. On the other hand, when we are ungrateful, we tend to shut ourselves off from the good we might otherwise experience.” - Margaret Stortz
