Attitude of Gratitude

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Health, Higher Ed, Home Sweet Home, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Relationships, Workin' Woman, Yours Truly on 02/11/2014 at 05:11

Here, I state:

It’s never too late to appreciate all the great of your fate.

I know, I know, this Dispo always busts a flow. You can always rely on yours truly to find a time to rhyme!

Now you also can count on me to give thanks everyday! Whenever I wake up, I’ll warm up with these stretches as I pray and praise GOD for the many Blessings with which he has blessed my loved ones and me. Before I go to bed, I’ll extend the magnitude of my gratitude to Him again…

Today’s blessings follow, as well as more from this past week and upcoming below. Wishing you all a winning Happy St. Valentine’s Day/Singles Awareness Day, as well as Heart Disease Awareness/Heart Health Month! Love you all, Team: Dr. D Players!

and lunch after church at China Star — where the owners called us our #1 customers and reminisced about how we were loyal patrons dating back since their opening 25 years ago, and where I got this fortune:

You will bring sunshine to someone’s life.

This is absolutely true since Sunshine is the name of my truck, and my name actually means light!
