I’ve made it a weekly practice of saying thanks by posting my gratitude list . So I am grateful every day for everything I have, and start my morning prayers with appreciation, but it always feels wonderful to put it down in writing.
Showing gratitude for what we have isn’t unusual. On my list of favorites are my family, friends and community. Today, I want to say thanks for the things I take for granted. I am also giving thanks for the challenges I am facing over the past week.
I am saying thanks
- For my recent loss – as it is a wake up call fro me to hold those I still have closer and establish contact with those I haven’t been in touch with.
- For misunderstandings – that give me the opportunity to connect and resolve.
- For my fears – so that I may develop the courage to overcome them
For my problems – so I may call upon my inner strength to find solutions
- For my sickness – that makes me realize how lucky i am to be healthy most of the time
- For my computer crash – it helped me gain new perspectives and learn new things
I am saying thanks
- For my friends, who’ve kept me in their prayers and thoughts and checked in with me every day
- For the efficient technician who helped me fix my computer
- For the gas cylinder refill guy, who said kind words
- For the Parent Teachers’ meeting at my son’s school where I felt the love from other parents I’ve known for more than a decade now.
- For the kindness of my local pharmacy, who delivered my prescription home when I wasn’t well.
- For Vanita Cyril, who showers me with love every single day, no matter what.
- For my son’s appreciation of the food I cooked this week.
- To readers who send me a lovely emails of appreciation for my writing. How humbling to know someone is inspired by what I write!
And no gratitude list of mine would be complete without saying thanks for my coffee.
I am counting my blessings – each one of them
YOU are one of them. Thank you!
