“Work with balloons, inflated or deflated.  You could even use one as the base for papier-mâché, cover it in glue-coated string…or?”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”  ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. 
Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.” 
― Thomas Merton

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”   ― A.A. MilneWinnie-the-Pooh
