Sometimes we pretend were not here…

Photo manipulation of emotion through image…

Please also view Acceptance by Tori Yule …. food for thought…..

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie
