Gratitude Monday, Tolerance and Sharing Instagram Love



Welcome to Gratitude Monday. Each Monday stop by & comment on what you are grateful for today. It does not have to be food or exercise related. It can be ANYTHING! If you just want to write a grateful comment & nothing else, that is fine too. Everything goes here.

I posted that first quote on my Facebook page Friday. I shared it from my sister’s FB page. It really says it all. There has been so much “mean stuff” out there in the world & here at home in the U.S. too so thankful for this quote! Kindness always is a good thing!!!

I also have some pics for you of things I am thankful for from the weekend – please enjoy:  PS: I tried a new way of putting pics in here but too hard to transfer & still have to edit them so need to figure this out next post – for now, sorry about the bad pics! No time to change for today’s post. The photogrid ones were from Instagram. 🙂


Always thankful for cookies!!! 🙂 I did not eat all the oatmeal cookies. Some are in the freezer!!!

Cut off my head by mistake. I did have make-up on too! Those are my new Hoka OneOne running shoes that matched my outfit so I wore them! Helped with the standing for hours too!

Above was some nice relaxing fun from Newport Beach Fashion Island Saturday to escape the heat. We have no AC!

Lastly, my Instagram friend Araine has a new business, Hello Totes. She has a great giveaway going on for those who follow her Instagram account. It is all about Acts of Kindness & this lady knows kindness! She is also on Twitter. She describes her totes as: eco-friendly totes to #celebrate and #encourage human-hood! LOVE! You can also reach her here: //personal IG: @sportbodyhealth // wholesale/collabs welcome. You can go to her Instagram account to enter to win a tote!!! Her store is not live yet BUT it will be in 2-3 days. The website is Hope you show some love… 🙂


This is what makes me thankful & grateful for social media even through some of the craziness of it – finding amazing friends & good people & good companies!

So what are you thankful for today? Hope you had a great weekend too!
