Come what may and love it

"In 1939, during the Mrs. Miniver years, when the English government feared a German invasion, the Ministry of Information had a simple poster prepared that was meant to be distributed should the worst happen. It read simply: Keep Calm and Carry On. Despite living through air raids, the bombing of Britain, the loss a generation of their men to the battlefield, severe rationing from eggs to thread and having to draw a long black line up the back of their legs because of a shortage of stockings, the “worst” actually never happened. A few years ago one of these posters was found in a box of old books. Now nearly 70 years later, may its wisdom warm your heart as it does mine and bring a smile today. Keep calm and carry on. No matter what may happen in the course of a day, remember it’s nothing that you and God can’t handle together. So repeat after me: Keep calm and carry on and keep your Gratitude Journal handy. Join us as we have fun remaking our world, one happy, positive blessing and joyful simplicity at a time. We’re celebrating a new prosperity—one of living and not lack." --Sarah Ban Breathnach
