I picked up a deck of affirmation cards by Florence Scovel Shinn the other day at the thrift store, and they are wonderful. The cards are quotes taken from her book, The Game of Life and How to Play It, which was published in 1925. I'd be delighted to pick a card for you. If… Continue reading Today anything is possible
All is well
