During the month of May, I want to make a conscience effort to have an attitude of gratitude. So each day I want to share with you a little something that makes me happy or something that I’m thankful for. I think by focusing each day on the positive instead of negative, it can change our mindset and help us lead a life of happiness! Be sure to come back each day to see what I’m adding to my list
