I am grateful…

I know things are worse than I could have possibly imagined, and honestly I think it will get even worse in the upcoming days. No, I am not being pessimistic, I can see the facts and I won’t indulge myself in denial.

However, I am certain it will end. I remember my car accident and my injury, and I remember how it helped to believe I was gonna get better, and I did eventually. I am grateful it is not a health matter and I am grateful it does not include losing a loved one. And that makes me know that when it is over, everything will be ok again.

For the time being, I would like to count my blessing to remind myself of all the good things I have…


I am grateful for having two amazing and healthy kids, each with a smile good enough to brighten my day…

I am grateful for having two amazingly supportive sisters who are there to show concern and listen when I need to talk…

I am grateful for having a loving family; despite how they may act thinking they know what’s best for me and my kids…

I am grateful for having the best friends one could ever hope for… I always thought I had a selected few, but as it turns out I have a lot more and I know how rare that is!

I am grateful that my health is stable…

I am grateful that through all that madness I could keep my sanity…

I am grateful I have the means to lead a good life without him or his help…

I am grateful that when my anger and my hurt subside, I am still able to smile and enjoy the good times I share with friends and family…

I am grateful that my prayers give me the peace of mind I need when it gets too much to handle…

I am grateful for everything that helps me get through the day even when I know it could still get worse…

I am grateful for knowing that when all is over, I will still have all the things I am grateful I have…


And that, gives me the strength I need to be patient…

Our blessings are countless, it's that we r sometimes blinded by pessimism and hate!
We should all be grateful!
