One of my collection of Grace quotes:

Happiness cannot be traveled to,
owned, earned, worn, or consumed.
Happiness is the spiritual experience
of living every moment with
Love, Grace and Gratitude.

I attempt to go through my days being as gracious as possible. (another clue on my blog name. See my tree post for the willow part). There are many days that I struggle with this, but that's life, right? But I figure, if I make the concious effort to keep grace in the forefront, then at least I'll survive the day less annoyed than otherwise. It's as simple as that.
