Exciting news – Salt Coffee Van – We did it!
The Salt Coffee Van has reached its goal of $15,000. The Salt Coffee Van is currently being made and will be with us in 6 weeks. A huge thank you to a very special donor who donated the remainder of the money needed. Thank you to all who have made this possible!
We will keep you all posted on our progress!
Thankfulness is like a big double door that when embraced and opened, welcomes in blessings, healing, hope and joy!
It’s not just on the good days that thankfulness can be exercised. The real power of gratitude lies In the midst of difficulty, pain and struggle when we are thankful for the significant and good things within our lives. Sometimes we just need to be reminded and then make a practice of it, a daily meditation as we wake in the morning, or lay our heads down at night.
The list of daily thank you’s is deeply personal, but for me…I’m thankful for life, for health, for family and friends, for love, resources, a roof over my head, children and grandchildren, all the beautiful quirky people in my world, for beauty and joy, for sunshine and rain. The more we meditate on it, the more it grows! It’s like medicine.
The very act of gratitude opens my eyes to my blessings and somehow achieves a whole lot of other things such as:
- opening the doors of heaven’s resources
- easing the sting of our pain.
- removing judgement and allowing love to flow *turning my negatives into positives
- lifting the cloud of depression
- turning curses into blessings
We get to choose what we focus our attention on, and without denying certain painful realities, I still choose to be thankful. Join with me as we express our gratitude each and every day we are alive!
Our Salt Coffee Van is in the process of getting made and will be with us in 6 weeks. Our aim is to help build confidence, professionally up skill, and support each individual as needed, making them employment ready.
The past few weeks we have been training Nat on the coffee machine. Nat is now working in a local coffee shop and has enjoyed learning how to use the coffee machine. Each week Nat learns something new and is able to apply that in her new work- place.
Well done Nat. Keep those cappuccinos coming 🙂
