How ever you celebrate this time of year…I applaud you! Gratitude is being thankful. A nice state of being. Appreciation is when you are in the moment and full of joy. Feeling wonderful, waves of goosebumps, having fun, moved to tears…in JOY. That’s worth pursuing. Or allowing to come your way.

Simple moments inspire appreciation…like playing Scategories with the family, updates from friends with pictures of their so-big kids, running for a good cause on a too-cold day. Here’s to appreciating what we are, do and have!
