Gratitude for Family – Day 4

Each week, I get an email that has all the writing prompts from Plinky for the week. I usually just delete it without so much as a glance. This week, there were quite a few prompts that fit in very nicely with my goal here, so I am going to answer one of them as my Day 4 Operation Gratitude post.

Name something you appreciate about each of your immediate family members.

  • Dear Daughter – I think that I appreciate her conviction about just about everything. She knows what she believes and isn’t afraid to stand up for it. She is most definitely her own person and won’t change just to fit in. She is passionate about her causes and does what ever she can to support them.
  • Middle Son – He is a very strong personality who knows what he wants and when he wants it. I appreciate his very bizarre sense of humor that has, on many occasions, totally caught me off guard, resulting in a fit of laughter on my part.
  • Youngest Son – He has always been very much of a cuddle bunny 🙂 He is the one in the house that will come running through a room just to give you a quick cuddle and then run off again with hardly slowing down. I appreciate how free he is with his love and hope that never changes. The world really needs much more of that!
  • Dear Husband – I so appreciate the journey we are on together. While he can’t understand my rational, I would not be the person that I am today without everything we have gone through, together. I am grateful that he loves me no matter what and that he is always there for me, even in his darkest times. I have become a better person due to our relationship and I greatly appreciate that.
  • Until Tomorrow!

Gratitude for The End of The Day – Day 3

For some reason, today has turned out to be much longer than it should have been. For the last couple of hours, I have been trying to get my son’s computer upgraded to Window 7 and get McAfee up and running properly.

There appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel as it appears that McAfee is just about finished (finally!). Once I am done with this, I will be putting the kids to bed (ahhh the silence 😀 ) and then head to the couch with a glass of wine in hand.

I am so grateful that the day is winding down and I get to start over fresh tomorrow. The ahhh factor of my bed is calling and I am very grateful for that as well!

Night all! Until Tomorrow!

The Contrasting Buffet – Abraham-Hicks Quote

We want you to enjoy the contrasting experience, just like you enjoy the contrasting buffet. And we want you to reach the place (and practicing Virtual Reality will help you to gain this confidence) that whenever you’re in front of a buffet that has so much that you do like to eat, as well as some that you don’t like to eat, you don’t feel
frustrated that there are things there you don’t want to eat. You don’t feel compelled to put them on your plate and eat them; you just pick the things that you like. And the Universe of thought is the same way. You can choose from it the things that you like.

— Abraham
