As 2013 draws to an end, we start to think about what we are grateful for and the relationships that we have built throughout the year. I would like to thank everyone in my life who has supported and encouraged me on my amazing journey! I treasure these relationships more than anything and look forward to a wonderful 2014! Enjoy this time spent with your family and friends!         ~Maria

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”~Melody Beattie
