“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is THANK YOU, it’ll be enough.”

       ~Meister Eckhart

 

The year is coming to an end and I’ve this question on my mind…WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?

There are so many things and people I need to be thankful for.

My life isn’t perfect, but it does have perfect moments.

I have got plenty of reasons to look up at the sky and say “THANK YOU”.

 

I’m grateful for the people who have had the greatest positive effect on my life – the ones who truly made a difference – these are the people I enjoy, who love and appreciate me, and who encourage me to improve in healthy and exciting ways. They are the ones who make me feel more alive, and not only embrace who I am now, but also embrace and embody who I want to be, unconditionally.

 

MY FRIENDS:

Dependable, honest people who reflect the person I am, and the person I want to be. Friends I am proud to know, people I admire, who show me love and respect. People who reciprocate my kindness and commitment

They aren’t the ones that tried to give me all the answers or solve all my problems. They’re the ones who sat silently with me when i needed a moment to think, who lend me a shoulder when i needed to cry, and who tolerated not having all the answers, but stood beside me anyway.

They have helped me improve my being.

 

MY FAMILY:

I am thankful for my parents who have always been my constant inspiration. They never put me down. Their love surpasses all logic. My parents have always believed in me…seeing past my imperfections. They have genuinely cared about me and supported me during my darkest days.

I am thankful for my godmother. She’s indeed a wonderful person, a strong loving woman I’ve always looked up to. Her words of encouragement and support are the foundation for which

I am grateful for my brothers who have been very loving and caring…taking care of me as if I were the youngest. The childhood moments that we’ve shared are the closest to my heart…they are fantastic and irreplaceable memories.

If it wasn’t for their love and care, I don’t know where I would be.

 

I’m grateful for the amazing life and I’m happy to be alive. I’m thankful for my strength and the joy of living.

I am thankful for times of success which will always be happy memories, for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for God, for times of joy when the sun was shining, for times of sadness which drove me to God. Thankful for the countless blessings I have received throughout my life.

I am grateful for the challenges, frustrations, fun and triumphs that made me who I am today. Thank you God, I could never have made it all without you. Thank you for the simple yet fulfilling life…Thank you Lord Jesus…
