Developing an Attitude of Gratitude – Day 401

I am thank for my friend Jo.

I am thankful for the wise counsel of a great mom. Even at 55 a person needs their mom… well at least this one does.

I am thankful my son made to his place okay. He was smart and stopped at a rest area to sleep when he got tired. He was able to get AAA to get him to a mechanic when his car broke down. And I am grateful we have some credit to help him get his car back on the road.

I am thankful for a good lunch with my teen. Things have been tense between us. I hope that lunch helped and I hope she knows i love her to the moon and back. I would give my life for her (I feel like I give everything I am to her and to her siblings now, even though it is never enough). She is a miracle I prayed hard for… an answer to 2 1/2 years of fasting and praying weekly. She is amazing.

I am thankful I am finding the courage to write in a gratitude journal daily and for the opportunity to keep myself accountable through blogging, even if it is only a handful of people who read this. It keeps me from spiraling into some kind of pity party. It makes me see all the good god blesses me with daily.

I am thankful for a sweet little picture of a happy little grand daughter who got to try ballet class for the first time. She is a miracle too. I am grateful that she and her family live close enough for me to see every once in a while. Before they moved closer, I only got to see her once a year. I am looking forward to summer, when I won’t have work and can see her more often! I am also grateful for all the grand kids living close. They make me smile.

  1. I, too, am grateful that you get to have your grand kiddos near and I think you need to have a countdown to Grandma Summer Camp. šŸ’•
    Please give Lillian a big hug for me…the kind that is a bear hug that rocks side to side. High school is light years more challenging than it was during our years. Satanā€™s minions no longer disguise themselves or hide in the shadows.

    Thank goodness for having a means to an end to assist our children.

    Hang in there, Sis. Go get some wind chime therapy, have Dr. Mark move stuff , and never forget that Heaven (and your sister Jo) is cheering you ALL on.ā¤ļøā¤ļø
