I have so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving that I am not even sure where to begin. Many blessings have found their way to me this year. I find myself at moments wondering what I did to deserve all these blessings… and in that moment I stop and remember my blessings are a way of reminding me that I must continue to give back and pass along blessings to others. With the release of Frankie’s book right around the corner in 2008 I plan to pass on that blessing by sharing Frankie with local school children. She is one of my biggest inspirations in life and to share her with others who need inspiration is a way in which I feel I can give back to others.
Taking a few moments this Thanksgiving to list what we are grateful for will open our hearts out into the universe and spread a positive message. By sitting with our thoughts and thinking of all the good things in life, the bad things don’t seem so bad afterall. Here are some of the things I am grateful for:
*I am grateful to God and the strength He sees in me to give me the challenges he has given me over the past few years. Those challenges have catapulted me forward and opened my eyes to a world alive with details and love.
*I am grateful for my family of John, Frankie, Kylie and Dani and our little cottage in the village. I feel safe within these walls, within the arms of John and within the paws of my furry friends who continue to love me unconditionally.
*I am grateful for the endless love and support of my mom. Though our time together has been limited with my busy schedule this year, she is always here with me within my heart cheering me on and loving me like only a mom can do.
*I am grateful for the friendships that have remained and continue to evolve while we each continue to grow and change. To move forward in ones life with the love and support of friends who stay no matter where your journey may take you is a gift beyond words.
*I am grateful for an open mind which continues to want to soak up everything there is to learn in this world. So much fascinates me that there are many days in which I wish there were more than 24 hours.
*I am grateful for MySpace.calm and the transformation I already feel growing within me. I’m so excited about all the opportunities that will unfold for 2008 and will be dreamt up within the cozy retreat of MySpace.calm.
*I am grateful for all the lessons I have learned in 2007… some very painful within the moments of not understanding why certain things happen… but in looking back, realizing this was a path I was meant to take in order to continue to evolve and grow. By realizing the lesson, the blessing is able to reveal itself.
I could go on and on with my blessings, but these stick out the most for me as I write this post today… I’m sure I will think of many more… which I wish for each of you… make your list, expand on it daily and see how it transforms your life… I promise it will.
Wishing each of you a blessed Thanksgiving and oh yes…. you are all among my grateful blessings. I am thankful to each of you for following me via my blog. Blessings galore to all of you.
