Celebrate You! Daily Quote:
“If we are ever to enjoy life, now is the time, not tomorrow or next year…
Today should always be our most wonderful day.”
~ Thomas Dreier
Yesterday, Day 14 of the 31-Day Celebrate You! Challenge, I celebrated the gifts of guidance.

By the time I got there, I was practically deaf from crying so much on all the plane rides. It took me years before I could finally say good-bye on my own. But I did, and I received some relief and closure.
