Gifts to Encourage!

Some of the treats I left in my kids book bags and
lockers to encourage them through their days!

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by everything that you get out of your "groove" totally? Well, that is where I am at...... "Groove less" and Lost! I have had so much going on the last couple of months that somewhere I lost ME! I have not been able to do a piece of art since I arrived home from my ART RETREAT! (Isn't that a hoot... go somewhere and be so inspired and come home to tired to react on your inspiration!). Hopefully this is the week to pull myself back together, get back into my daily routine! Because of this lack of enthusiasm or whatever is causing my "rut" I am listing some of my favorite encouragements hoping to be inspired, encouraged and at the same time offering you ideas to encourage others! LOL

7-UP: 'Seven up-lifting' thoughts for a good week!
Angel: Thanks for being such an 'angel'!
Apple Cider/Wassail mix: A little something to spice up a cold winter day!
Basket of Bath Items: When you feel like a basket case, take a break, and slow your pace!
Bath salts: Some days can be a strain on your body and your brain, so when you feel stressed, a hot bath is best, it truly will help keep you sane!

For being there when you were 'kneaded',
for 'rising' to the occasion, large or small.
For never 'loafing' on the job and
Helping others 'heel' through it all.
