There is Good In Every Day

Thursday Reminder… Not all days are good, but there’s something good in every day. Remembering this is another way I stay positive on rough days. If you’re having a rough day, take some time to find that something good. ~xoxo Marianne This is Post 52 of 100 as part of the #100DaysofMKAuthorLife.
