Excerpt from the Foreword

Janet Crawford

Excerpt from the Foreword of Simply Grateful by Janet Crawford, Professional Certified Coach & Certified Life Cycle Celebrant:

“You will soon discover that you hold a treasure in your hands as you begin reading these thoughtful, poignant, inspiring, and uplifting snapshots of gratitude.  And as you complete the reflections, you will soon discover the life enhancing treasure of living each day, each moment through the lens of gratitude. 

You will find yourself smiling.  You will laugh out loud, and you may even dance. You just might shed a tear or two as your heart opens to all there is to be grateful for. Your memories will be renewed. Your imagination will be sparked . . .
