Centered, sane and grateful - a review

How wonderful it would be if that's the case for everyone all time! But as we live in an imperfect world we can only take life one day at a time. If CEOs are people trying to hold their sanity for obvious reasons, moms are no different. Whether they are working outside the home, homeschooling, moms are usually in the center of many important things.

This Gabby Moms October product is about staying sane and centered in a sea of mothering responsibilities. Gratitude is crucial. You have to learn it. As if it's not enough that you have managed to stay centered and sane, you have to be grateful as well.

That's right grateful. I heard that too. Vividly.  When author Lorrie Flem started talking about gratitude I wondered what version of the virtue could I have exercised in the aftermath of divorce; in the face of a harrowing diagnosis - coordinating with specialists and therapists, not to mention dragging the son between two countries thrice before he could even say 'airplane' and being reduced to a humiliated mess over petrifying tantrums at airports and malls. Hang on. After having to do all that alone I'm supposed to flash a smile of gratitude across my battered face? This woman must be kidding.

Well, she wasn't. Actually she went on giving tips and practical ideas on growing gratitude. My fury and curiosity blended well on the admonition to read the Word. As I listened to the audio, I realized anew that my ordeal did not kill me. That I am able to do all this without a single cent of support from the ex, yes, that is some reason to be thankful despite the troubles. But more importantly being in one piece for a son badly in need of a parent woke me up to a clearer understanding on the importance of gratitude. There's quite a lot of sense in gratitude as a way to a centered and sane life. You will find out how and why in this new audio series which will be available on November 1st. A wealth of related info abound on the author's site Eternal Encouragement Magazine. Try a visit and be blessed.
