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. 💕
    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. Satan’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.❤️❤️
