Gratitude

Today I am deflecting from my chosen category of writing stories and thought of writing about the things that I am really grateful for in my life. So here goes:

1. I am grateful for having such loving and supportive parents.
2. I am grateful for my husband. He is my support system and a pillar of strength.
3. I am grateful for my job.
4. I am grateful for my in laws, especially my father in law for taking interest in whatever I pursue and encouraging me to never give up.
5. I am grateful for all the comforts that I have in my life, which I so often take for granted.
6. I am grateful that I have a minimalist attitude and can differentiate between my wants and needs.
7. I am grateful for my friends who have been there with me through thick and thin.
8. Finally I am grateful that God has been very kind to me and showered his blessings when I was least expecting it, there by strengthening my belief in him

  1. I like your #6. It's a gift to be that kind of self-are to differentiate between wants and needs. A definite sign of maturity! I am trying to be more of a minimalist, but am finding it a challenge in this commercial culture.

  2. Hello there.
    I am grateful for the gift of life, that I know God's Name (Psalms 83:18), that He knows me (Acts 17:27, 28) and I know His plans for the future (Psalms 37:29; Isaiah 35:5, 6; Revelation 21:4). Everything else is an added bonus!
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog (A Bench with a View) and your comment. I like how you listed what you were grateful for. When we truly look at what we have, we do realize we are blessed. It is always good too to reflect on the blessings in our life; seems like you have many!

    1. Yes it is very important to realize that there are many things in our life we should b happy about, instead of cribbing about what we don't have. Thank you Betty for taking your time out and visiting my blog :)
