mum inspires, Thankful Thursday, gratitude, birthdays

I must be getting old as every time my birthday approaches, my thoughts are filled not with wishes that I hope to come true on my special day but of gratitude and thanks for all the blessings I am getting from Above since Day 1. In my 36 years, I have long realized that after all that I have been through in life, I was truly blessed to be living the life that I am living now, to be able to witness my son grow up each and every single day, to be there for my little man especially when he needs me the most instead of being tied up to a desk or a headset-and-a-computer. I am very blessed to be doing what I love doing and that is to be a mother to my son and to write, even when I am currently neck-deep with deadlines and backlogs on this blog.

It is a good night’s sleep away from my very special day and today I thank the Universe for these:

  • for making me realize how blessed I am
  • for another year to experience everything that life has to offer
  • for allowing me to live the kind of life that I love
  • for giving me special people in my life who makes me feel special
  • for Jared’s dad  :heart:
  • for the unexpected surprises in the mail
  • for  the opportunity to do and earn from doing what I love to do the most ~ to write
  • for making my blogs instruments for blessings, friendships, and opportunities
  • for the chance to cuddle up with a good book even when I cannot finish it {currently reading this awesome book about one of my favorite people, Princess Diana}
  • for making me experience childhood all over again with my little man  :heart:
  • for a good night sleep
  • for good health
  • for seemingly endless chores that keep me occupied throughout the day
  • for finding inspirations from just about anything and anyone around me {like these wild flowers on the photo I chanced upon one day while on my way to my parents home}
  • for random acts of kindness
  • for the constant reminder of God’s love and grace

Truly, there is so much to be thankful for if we only look around us closely with an open heart. What are you thankful for today?
