7 Days of Thankfulness Part 2

There are so many things that I am thankful for. Over the past week, I have been able to reflect and I wanted to share.
1. Life
I am so grateful to be alive. There have been times where I’ve consumed with living and surviving, that I forget to breathe and realize that I am alive and well. I realize that each day is a gift and thank God for that.

2. Parents
The older I get, the more I love my parents. I am thankful for their support and love. Every day has not been perfect and our relationship is not perfect…but it is healthy. I am thankful to have been raised by people who love serving others and who are authentically caring. When challenges and conflict happens we listen and respect each other. I am so extremely grateful.

3. Sister
My sister is my very best friend, companion, my ace. I can be myself with her. Everyone should have one person who you can be completely transparent and open with without fear of judgment or rejection. She accepts, me as I am with all of my quirks, ideas, feelings, stubbornness, eccentricities, and so on. I am grateful for the rare bond that we share.

I wanted to share what I am thankful for! I hope that this Thanksgiving is full of love and delicious food!

Thanks for reading!

7 Days of Thankfulness Part 1

Over the next seven days, I will be taking more time out on being thankful.  Each day, I will set aside some time to reflect on the blessing that I have.  I would like to encourage you to do the same.

I noticed that when I express my gratitude to God and those who have shown kindness to me I feel content and happy.  I truly believe that when you have a grateful attitude, you can handle life’s challenges easier and great things
come to you.

I truly believe that being thankful and grateful changes your perception on life.  You become more optimistic and positive.  I have noticed that in my personal life, when someone shows me  kindness and I express my gratitude, more acts of kindness comes my way. 

So today, I am thankful for the kindness and love given to me.  I value kindness and love because it rare and scarce.

What are you thankful for?
