When I was a young mother by myself, the only thing I used to really pray for was that God would let me have enough time on this earth to see that my kids were raised well. So in that vein, everyday I get is an extra blessing, because I never asked for anything more.

I am thankful for today and all its possibilities.

I am thankful for enough food, for there are so many who don't have enough.

I am thankful for a warm house, because there are those who are cold.

I am thankful for a bit of extra money, which I promise to try and help others with.

I am thankful that I had my dear Mother until last year.

Ah, but the point here is that Vdale4, you have a 100% positive attitude!!!

We ALL have some manner of tragedy in our lives (I lost my Mom at age 8, and I was stalked by an ex-boyfriend for close to 20 years, among other things), but if you keep your head up and learn to appreciate what's around you, then life is good!

Happy Friday to all.

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Vdale4, I'm so sorry that you lost your daughters to a fire. How horrible for you. We lost our home 12 years ago to a fire and we were very lucky to escape. I can imagine how awful it must have been for you.

I have been reading articles here at SP and in this month's Simple magazine and the word 'gratitude' keeps coming up. So I thought since it is healthy to name 5 things you are grateful for each day, I'd start this thread so we can do that. (Of course, many of us have many more!)

Today, I am grateful for:

SP with all its encouragement and new friends.

A crisp, bright fall morning.

My sleeping furbaby, Maggie.

That hubby is off of vaca and back to work today! :-)

My good sense of humor.



Bright Blessings
Sue
