“After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem, there is a solution, and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.”~ William R. Alger
Nothing makes my day more than when a reader shares how his or her life experience changed by using the power of gratitude. Two weeks ago, I wrote about the hurricanes that devastated parts of the US and surrounding areas. Here’s what Robert had to say about it…
“We got hit by both storms. I live in far western North Carolina, about 60 miles west of Ashville just outside of Smoky Mountain National Park. A band from Harvey took out our power two weeks ago, and then we had 10 Floridians and their 3 dogs (half from St Pete, half from Daytona) move in with us last Thursday to escape Irma. Of course, Irma followed them up here and we lost power for more than 12 hours Monday into Tuesday. Add to that the constant drizzle or rain over several days and the kids (6 ranging from 9 months to 19 years old) were going cabin crazy. We are glad that they all are ok and their houses are intact with power now restored. 5 left yesterday and 2 more this morning. The remaining 3 and the dogs will leave soon and we will actually miss them all.
“I thought about your Gratitude Lessons many times the past week and just kept smiling and laughing at the whole situation.”
Gratitude really is the best attitude! Thank you, Robert!
