5 Joyfully Appreciative in January

I am the type of gal who tries to take a moment to reflect on my blessings daily as I never take for granted the beautiful people in my life or the opportunities that have come my way.  This morning I am tipping my hat to the kind folks that sponsor my site and allow me to do what I love.
