Notes on Gratitude

“A miracle is not defined by an event. A miracle is defined by gratitude.” (Here If You Need Me, p. 181)

Our ability to feel grateful grows with patient practice, with taking the time to notice the events, people, places and things—big and small—that bring us peace, joy, and love.

New Book

"Your book is coming together in a great story that I believe will touch people wholeheartedly. You are taking what was, at times, a very sad and difficult journey, and creating a way to share it and encourage others to maintain the course, to hope, to keep moving forward towards a better life. That's an incredible thing. The path that led you to here, to writing this book, to morph it as you went along, is coming together beautifully. That path, like ourselves and our lives,hasn't been "perfect"... but the end product will be amazing and change lives for the better."

- Susan S.
