Engaging in the moment, engaging in ourselves on a deep level, brings the craziness of the world to a stop. Only then can we experience our own truth.
Take a breath and be.
Continuing on my theme for this month: gratitude.
Some people like to stick it in a jar. Gratitude statements that is. It’s a popular alternative to writing journals. At the end of the year, you open the jar and read the slips of paper.
It’s another way to capture and cherish what we are grateful for.
I thought I’d try (again) to keep a Gratitude journal. As I suspected it wasn’t easy for me. I kept arguing with myself. Isn’t it good enough to just note in my mind what I’m grateful for? But I stuck with it, determined to complete 30 days of posting. Below is a sample of my writing.
I am grateful for:
Tuesday ~ large flakes of snow floating gracefully to the ground reminding me of my youth
Wednesday ~ the blinding brightness of the sun as it rose over the horizon
Thursday ~ for the peaceful feeling of concentrating on one knit stitch at a time

To feed her three children, Widow Abigail Jenkins takes the only job available in Sunset Cove: night cleaner in the notorious, haunted teahouse. She figures the wild, supernatural rumors about the place are pure fiction. After all, ghosts don’t exist.
Eric Eklund, a sexy spirit from Sweden, is over a thousand years old. Having missed his chance at Valhalla, the Viking spends his time roaming the world and gambling. That is, until he sees Abby whose feisty, earthly-spirit turns his ghostly world upside down.
When the two meet sparks fly, but their romance is interrupted by a poltergeist hunting children.
What happens when you mix a naughty Viking ghost, built like a Norse god, a strong woman who suffers no fools and a nasty poltergeist? Answer: another fun Gambling Ghost story.
A Viking Ghost for Valentine’s Day is a lighthearted novella filled with love, laughter and just enough ghouliness to thrill and chill you to the bone.
