Do your thoughts and actions point in the direction of your dreams? Align you actions with your goals so that the future you create may be full of joy.

I am grateful for chick-a-dees in their black and gray, for purple finches in their rosy hue and for blue jays. I am  grateful for lady bugs and butterflies, for daisies that wave in the wind and for dew drops that glisten in the light.

I am grateful for family, for friends and for neighbors who share my world.

And, I am grateful for you, dear reader, as you stop to share my day. May your thoughts be focused and your actions be fruitful as you go forward in the direction of your dreams.
