Gratitude Stones
Paint one of your own or keep a small, natural stone in your pocket, on your bedside table or somewhere you'll see it daily as a simple and gentle reminder for us to be thankful for what we have. Some say that if we appreciate all that we have and focus on the postive in our lives, where we want to be be rather than what we don't want, we will attract more good things to us, why not create your own with a design that means something to you...
Would you like Ruth to paint one espectially for you? Get in touch..

I want to share with you something quite personal about my journey in the last 6 months. I think one day I may go into the details of this as there is a book there somewhere I’m sure, but for now the specifics aren’t so relevant, so I will just say that it was a prolonged traumatic experience/s over many days, on top of the ‘usual’ grief (whatever that is!) of the loss of a loved one. Life often throws us ‘big stuff’ and when the ‘proverbial’ hits the fan it can really knock us off course and keeping ourselves on an even keel, staying grounded, connected and keeping a sense of calm in the mayhem can be incredibly challenging, if not impossible at times. Read more about my recent personal journey through the 'proverbial'....
