If you’re local to the Sacramento area, join me over at Sacramento Moms Like Me this Thursday, June 2nd for a Live Web Chat: Gratitude – A Happy Habit. (7-8pm, PST) I’ll be talking about how thankfulness can can help us beat stress, parent better, and lead healthier and happier lives. I’d love to see you there!
In the meantime, here are a few good quotes:
“If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.” ~Gerald Good
