Sharing this gratitude quote from the 21-Day Meditation Experience by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. I cannot agree with this quote more. If we, indeed, focus on being grateful for our relationships, there relationships will only thrive and flourish.

Mum’s Two Cents: The Good Cops + The Bad Cops In PNP

The Bad Cops

Again, I am sharing a gratitude quote from Deepak and Oprah’s 21-Day Meditation Experience. This time, the general theme is all about gratitude and grace. A very timely reminder if you ask me. I enjoy doing them before bed with the little man. Usually, I would meditate again in the morning while my son is in school. But, since he is on summer break, I only get to meditate once. Quiet time around here is a bit scarce on summer. But, hey I am not complaining. It is a joy to be around my bossy little Avenger addict. I do miss him on occasions when he is in school!
