A Rainbow of Holiday Miracles Contest | Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul Group

 

Time to put pen to paper and git a 'writin! Of course I am shamelessly promoting this contest because Sally asked me to be a judge, and besides, it is a wonderful contest! A chance to tell us all how positive you really are, how your life has a miracle or 2 in it.

I am hoping to see lots of posts here. Besides, the amount of points being given away is a holiday miracle, LOL.. another obscene amount of points to grease the old wheels in the brain.

Plus you never know who your story will touch, how it will make a difference to someone who really needs that holiday miracle right about now. It has been a tough year for many, we can all use a little lift to get us through.

Thank you Sally for such an awesome contest, and for me personally, a fantastic way to give back a little of what I get from everyone here in the 'rain. And of course thank you Bob "give those points away" Stewart!

Now, fingers to keyboards.... READY... SET.... GO!

 

Without a doubt this year has been a challenge for all. Amidst all that surrounds me, I found solace and gratitude in a miracle of sorts. A simple rainbow that reminded me that through all there ARE miracles in life, business, family and just a simple .....rainbow.

Being grateful for what I do have can be a leading point of success for everything else that may follow. I may not have had a lot of business...but I had enough to get me through the year and pay my bills. I may have had to work extra hours in the office but I came home to a happy home. I do have the riches of self worth and therefore have the ability to love others.

And then I see the rainbow of miracles again.

 

There are so many things in life that we will recognize as miracles that have gotten us through the hard times and being so grateful for the NOW. It's these times when selflessness is a major priority and reminds us to give back.

With this I bring you another HOLIDAY Contest from the Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul group and our theme this time around is "A Rainbow of Holiday Miracles"! With all we have to be grateful for we find the miracles in this holiday season to give back to those that feel weary.
