I've always been a fan of Pollyanna, but until I reached 30 I didn't realize the importance of adjusting your own attitude towards the situations life throws your way. I now drive people crazy trying to find "the silver lining" behind every cloud. I'd rather be that person than a grumpy gus. To that end, I started playing the gratitude game every day. Each day I choose something that I'm grateful for and I love asking the people I come in contact with what they're grateful for. I'm often delighted and surprised by their answers. I find that by focusing on what's good in life instead of what's bad, I get into the proper attitude for handling anything.
Today, I'm grateful for teeth. I can't wait to hear what you're grateful for.
I've had a couple of queries that I replied to and THEN I remembered that some of the emails I'm getting are those "noreply" emails. So, if you didn't get your answer, I'm hoping you're reading this.

The baseball baby sampler was by Country Cottage Needleworks and it's called Little League. Here's the link she recommended.
And now, last week's work.
