Hello Yogi-Friends ~ It is GratiTuesday! Well, now, I am not a Mom, but I know lots of Moms. Perhaps you are one of them? Recently in conversation with a Mom-Friend discussing ways to introduce mindfulness to children… other than meditation ; ) Found a pdf-link to print out – or inspire your own kid-at-heart creative designs – “Awesome Summer Gratitude Journal” pages: http://inspiredbyfamilymag.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Awesome-Summer-Gratitude-Journal.pdf   Backstory and child-focused suggestions posted on Mari Eugenia’s blog: http://inspiredbyfamilymag.com/2015/07/14/summer-gratitude-journal/   Each Tuesday we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site. It needn’t be lofty and can certainly reflect something we usually take for granted. I’ll go first… I AM so happy and grateful for mindful Moms. Now your turn. I AM so happy and grateful now that/for: _____________________

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday! I love books. Actual books. Books with paper pages. Recently came across a book title that instantly caught my attention, “Attitudes of Gratitude: How to Give and Receive Joy Every Day of Your Life,” by M.J. Ryan. In this small volume of brief essays, Mary Jane ‘illuminates the many gifts that gratitude bestows upon us and offers a number of ways to practice it.’ Find it on Amazon: https://read.amazon.com/AttitudesofGratitudebyMJRyan Or consider visiting your local bookseller, OR local library! Alright, well… each Tuesday we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site.
