Writing is the new praying.....



Some gratitude for right now:

I am grateful for newly ripe tomatoes
I am grateful for almost ready to harvest pumpkins
I am grateful for a speedy recovery
I am grateful for my roomie
I am grateful for my sisters
I am grateful for a purpose
I am grateful for blogging
I am grateful for my Texas, the heartbeat at my feet
I am grateful for books, a way to get away for a few hours (or minutes if that's all I have)
I am grateful for COBRA which I was able to take advantage of in the nick of time
I am grateful for the people who sent their good energy to shore me up during my crisis
I am grateful for my home
I am grateful for my friends, who love and accept me just as I am, warts and all
I am grateful for cool breezes at night and in the early hours of the morning
I am grateful for the sliver of moon I can see out my window
I am grateful for the opporutinity to change my life with school
I am grateful for the love I have in my life
I am grateful to be alive

Peace ♥

Being grateful for what you have will bring you more to be grateful in the future... just a universal law.

Sooo important to remember all of those things, but sooo difficult to always do so, as our day-to-day stuff often gets in the way.

Very nice post!
