Gratitude

on November 8, 2007

Every once in awhile in a quiet moment I feel this overwhelming feeling of gratitude. It’s usually when, for just a brief second, I step off the crazy world and watch it whirl beneath me. I am in awe at what God created and in the midst of all of that I am also keenly aware that HE is aware of me.

Tonight here are some of the things I’m grateful for:
* A mom that is good — right to the core.
* That the Lord seems to know what person I need in my life at just the precise moment allows our paths to cross.
* A job that is at times frustrating, but still fulfilling.
* That I have a sister who has always been a good example to me and who loves me unconditionally.
* Nieces and nephews that constantly amaze me as well as love me without question.
* Cable TV so there is more interesting things to watch. Thank you TLC, TVLand, Nick-at-Night, Discovery, Food Channel, USA, and yes — I admit — even Lifetime TV.
* That yesterday I received my 10% keychain at Weight Watchers.
* Diet Coke
* My laptop computer
* The Would-Be-Writers-Guild
* The invention of SSRI’s.
* Golds Gym
* That answers to my prayers are found constantly in my scriptures
* That I’ve started to date after several years of being in the desert.
* Jean Luc for treating me like a lady and helping feel like I truly am dateable.
* New Boy for telling me I was pretty and had really pretty eyes.
* GNO and their never ending support and for showing me what it means to be a woman of Christ.
* Therapy.
* Bare Minerals. The informercial is right – it is amazing.
* Acrylic nails and being able to tap them.
* The 3 friends in my ward who share laughs, diet tips, and their babies with me.

Yes — I am bless-ed!
