Critic Reviews

“The author of the popular "Random Acts of Kindness" series reaches into her warm heart again to produce an inspirational treasure. Gabrielle de Cuir adds immeasurable value to these sentiments with her palpable understanding of the ideas, but it's the author's words that will touch people with their heartfelt advice that gratitude is a marvelous antidote for a whole lot of problems. Sure, we can't control most of what happens in life. But we can cast a transforming blanket of peace and security over our experiences, no matter how awful or depressing, by being grateful for our blessings. A gift for the self or for those who might need a warm and gentle nudge to adjust their attitude.” ( Audiofile)
"I'm thankful to Mary Jane Ryan because her candid and story-filled book reminds me to return to my heart-the home of gratitude- and consequently, enhances my connection with all that is wonderful and wise around and within me." (Sue Patton Thoele, best-selling author of Woman's Book of Courage, and Courage to be Yourself)
“Exquisitely reconnects us to the wonder and satisfaction which can be found in our daily lives....A delightful book for anyone who wants to focus on the joy and satisfaction in their everyday life.” (Judy Ford, author of Wonderful Ways to Love a Child)

Great book

To say this book was life changing seems dramatic to me but it made a deep impression on me and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Shows how to bring joy into your life and how to leave the negativity behind. Affirmations, positivity etc didn't do it for me but the ideas in this book did. Many years ago a wise person said to me that Gratitude is very powerful, and it is. Many of us in a secular society have lost the habit of giving thanks and are poorer for it. This book helped me to see that.
