Thought for the Week

When we chose not to focus on what is missing from our lives, but are grateful

for the abundance that's present - love, healthy family,  friends, work, the joys of nature,

and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure - the wasteland of illusion falls away

and we experience heaven on earth.       (Sarah Ban Breathnach, American writer)
