“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” ~ Cicero

In CELEBRATING 365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE, people from all walks of life came together to submit essays on the virtue of gratitude. From tales of heartwarming reunion to lessons learned in the face of great adversity, this anthology inspires readers to reflect on everything they have to be thankful for. So take a step back and give thanks – it’s good for the soul!

Whether you’re reading about a touching moment with a pet, a fun vacation memory, or simply good food, you’ll be grateful for the reminder to take time to enjoy life’s small moments.

Gratitude Book: A Collection of Personal Essays and Poems
My contributions are:
January 28 (page 50) – Rocking Chair Moments
May 2 (page 156) – The Wedding Ring Mystery

Rocking Chair Moments is a personal essay about the good times and slow conversations visiting with family on the front porch of our country home.

The Wedding Ring Mystery is a story that involves a crisis, some ambulance drivers, and then a mystery with many amateur detectives hard at work.

What’s Next?

The community book projects have changed my perspective as a writer.

I was able to learn the process for creating an eBook through this team-based project while also completing a similar class online, eBook by Number, from Suzi Whitford.

Using the skills from both classes, I wrote an eBook that goes beyond just teaching people how they can get started with their morning routine and achieve personal goals through taking specific actions in early mornings– download here!
