Autumn Gratitude


There are many ways to help stave off depression and to feel grateful for our lives. This video demonstrates one of them. It gives you short sentences to up lift and encourage you to appreciate and be grateful for just being YOU.

Sometimes we are so sick that we cannot remember to say anything good about ourselves or to anyone else. That attitude serves to keep us in that dark hole of depression longer.

View the video and then think of the beauty that is in your life. The beauty you are grateful for. It might be the bright smile of a child. It might be the tender touch of your significant other. It might be the quite time you spend alone with your Devine Creator-your Source-your God.

Reach deep within and find that place of peace. Remember who you are. Allow the smile that has been waiting to appear on your face to shine through. Let yourself enjoy today. It is the only time we really have. Why not make it the best day of your life.

Mckay, what a great video, I love the colors it reminds me of autumn, where I used to live in the UK. I think you have a calling as a film maker, hope to see more.

P.S Love the new header.

Carole, I am so glad you enjoyed the video. I certainly have a passion as a film maker.

Beautiful!!!!!!!!

Thank you for you sweet comment today. Very much appreciated :)

My alchoholic friend??? He does not know about my post, nor the prayers that may have followed. Sometimes miracles do happen ... he is much better and back to work again. Is that not great?

Say, is that you on the header??

Hi from your friend in Minnesota,

The comment were all true and I am so pleased to know that your friend is better. When we pray and believe, our prayer is answered. Thanks to you, he had a whole community praying for him.

Yes, that is the last photo shoot I did after I became ill. I ran across that picture one day and thought it would work well. I am satisfied with it.

As you can tell, I love the other side of the camera now!

Be well

Mckay K's Son. Now this one made me cry. It is nice to be appreciated. It is hard for the person you are closest to to put into words how they feel. Thank You.

I love and respect you as well. If it were not for you, I would not be able to accomplish all the work on this blog.

Love your Mom
