Floating Dinghy of Terror

We take so much for grant­ed. The next day is expect­ed to come when we open our eyes. But things can change in the blink of an eye. With­in sec­onds the life that you take for grant­ed can be changed forever. In the blink of an eye! I was remind­ed of this fact over the…

Gratitude

Give thanks with a grate­ful heart. I have often thought about the expres­sion of grat­i­tude and the effect on the recip­i­ent. My daugh­ter loves all things hors­es.
