8 Ways to Enjoy a Walk If You’re a Writer



I combine my walk with being a writer. I like to walk all year round, but spring is a special favorite. The sun warms the earth spreading the smell of pine trees and grasses and gets my mind working or just resting taking in all the beauty of nature.

Day 12 of 30 Day Challenge

Thankful or Grateful? Is There a Difference?

I strive to be both; thankful and grateful. According to the dictionaries they are the same, using each word to describe the other.
