At this very moment.....

Why are you grateful?

I am grateful because the Lord loves me and he has blessed me with another day to serve him.

I am grateful because I have a job. My office has a great view, I'm sitting at my desk with my music library playing my favorite songs, my candle is lit, I am surrounded by personal items that I love and I have no meetings scheduled.

I am grateful because yesterday I picked up my motorcycle up from the shop and the mechanic did not try to take advantage of me and he also polished it for no xtra fee.

I am grateful because I received an unexpected letter in the mail from a publishing company that saw my work registered at the Library of Congress. How cool is that?

I am grateful that for most people it's Thursday but because my line of work, it's "FRIDAY" for me.

I am grateful that I will be attending a Mother's Day luncheon on Saturday with my Church family. (PS) Happy early Mother's day to all the Blog Moms....

I am grateful because I know in the end, when this life is over "My real home is in Heaven!"

Love, peace and gratitude.....

I'm grateful to be alive and be loved by so many special people.

I'm grateful for the journey of self discovery that I am taking because it has opened my eyes to so many things.

I'm grateful to be unemployed. No matter how I feel about my job I would be a selfish fool to complain when so many are jobless and would love to be in my shoes.

I'm grateful for blogging because it has allowed me to get to know so many special people.

years before.

Great post China!

I’m grateful to have found love..lost love.. And found love again.

I’m grateful to have a full time j.o.b in this troubled economy.

I’m grateful for a beautiful gown daughter, who seems to be making her way through this rocky road we call life.

I’m grateful for the gift of life to continue to learn and be molded by Almighty GOD.

I’m VERY grateful to have found some of the most positive sisters and brothers on the plant from blogging. Thank you!!!

I just realized I wrote that I was grateful to be unemployed. LOL! That definitely is not what I meant.

I came back because I realized I forgot something. I'm grateful for the gift that God has given me (writing) and i'm glad that i'm finally comfortable sharing it with others.

I am also grateful for my life, my family, my home.
I am grateful because I feel God has been watching out for me and is watching over the dearly departed who I miss and love.
I am grateful for the air, the sun, the flowers, everything nature provides and for having the ability to see and appreciate, only what God is capable of creating.
I am grateful for my joys and for my sorrows and for my tears for they all make me into the person that I am.
I am also grateful for my blogging friends May he bless them and keep them safe on their journeys as he has on mine

I love this post and as always you rock sister.

Just yesterday I was driving and was once again so thankful to my dear Jesus for dying for my sins. That took on a whole new meaning and I was thinking about people who have passed on to the other side but never gave their lives to Christ.

A co-worker's mom passed away last week followed by grand mother last Tuesday - death have been on my mind. I am VERY thankful for the hope that I have to see my Lord face to face one day.

(Took me 2 hours to write just a few words) while doing a million things.


Much love to you!.

Myriam, my prayers are with you my dear sister. Love and holding you close to my heart!

Have a great weekend everyone!
