A Moment’s Pause for Gratitude
Enrich Your Life with a Focus on Gratitude
About the Book
“Kevin Carroll's reminders have helped me resist the urge to complain and replace it with an appreciation of all that I have. A Moment’s Pause for Gratitude can be read in one sitting or used as a daily prayer of thanks; either way, it serves as an antidote to negativity and an aide for the peaceful mind. I expect it will be as helpful to other readers as it has been for me and I’m grateful to him for putting it into this world.” —Roland Merullo Author, Breakfast with Buddha and The Delight of Being Ordinary We all feel grateful from time to time, yet how often do we fail to adequately express our gratitude to others? The fifty inspirational stories contained in A Moment’s Pause for Gratitude will inspire readers to focus on gratitude and to express their gratitude more consistently and conscientiously.
