Posts Tagged ‘grateful’

Life has not always been kind to me. Much of it was my own fault for making wrong decisions. I still make some wrong choices, but hope a lot fewer.

Through it all I have been richly blessed by God, who loves me unconditionally. The greatest gifts He blesses me with are all the wonderful people He puts on this path I walk through this life.

I didn’t ask to be born and I almost wasn’t. There were times when I wished I wasn’t. Many times I wonder why I was born! I am growing in wisdom. And, glad I was born.

Learning to be grateful for my life, in all its ups and downs has been, and is a blessing. Still not sure what my purpose here is, but I pray I’m doing some things right.

Life IS Good!

It might be necessary to give up the quality time I currently have to read, watch, listen, daydream and write. I need the means for a supplemental income. My dream is to have enough temp/contract work, some full time some part time to bring in the finances needed, but still have plenty of free quality time for me and my dreams. None of my friends believe that is possible.  I believe it is, if it is God’s will it will happen.  Anyway, I am happy and grateful for my blessings.

I love meeting new people, and that also happens at the BN Cafes. It often begins by just seeing some of the same people over and over again, then we smile and say hello to each other. Eventually a time comes when one of us starts a conversation. It becomes a community, even if never socializing outside of here. Yet Greenville is still small enough to occasionally run into someone at another location, like a grocery store, at church etc.

Yesterday I watched a couple UTube posts about being grateful and saying thank you to others. It is a great reminder. I do thank God, at least most every day and sometimes more than once a day. But sometimes I forget to tell others thank you. It doesn’t matter if it is for something big or small. Too many times we take things for granted i.e. someone holding a door open for us, providing service with a smile, the gift of a handwritten message sent by snail mail, even a short kind text message. How many times a day do we miss saying thank you to someone, and brightening their day? How many things, a day can we be grateful for…especially the people in our lives.

Have you ever thought of being grateful for those things you are not even aware of, like being protected from an accident you might not have noticed while driving on our roads these days!

I love daydreaming as I look out the window wall I sit next to in the Café.  I watch the white fluffy clouds in the blue sky. I remember the time I saw one which looked like an island, My Island in the Sky

Day 2, one year ago.  This was the day of closing on the sale of my townhouse in Georgia!

Sold House in GA

Sold House in GA

After the closing that morning my brother and I went to lunch.  He then helped me to get all the boxes moved from upstairs to downstairs and organize them for easier loading the next morning for the move to Greenville.

That evening we met three of my gal friends at a restaurant for dinner.  This was the first time my brother and my friends met each other. We had a great time talking and laughing.  It wasn’t goodbyes since I would only be two hours away.

Back at the house we relaxed and watched a little TV before going to sleep for the last time in that house.  Don’t think I got much sleep that night for the excitement of finally being able to move to Greenville.

Thank you God for this first day of 2014 and all the wonderful people in my life.

This past year was a very blessed one in so many ways, which included finally selling my house in Georgia, moving to Greenville SC in November, and already making some new friends.

I am looking forward to all the wonderful blessings, and awesome surprises you have in store for me God:-)  I begin with a  clean slate to write on, an empty vase to fill.  https://amarquette333.wordpress.com/2012/07/22/a-blank-slate-3/

Thank you God for this first day of 2013, for the rain we need, for all the wonderful people in my life, for being with me as I walk the path of transition and begin working on my goals for this year.

The first today was waking up to enjoy another day. I am grateful that I am well, the day was lovely, I have a nice place to live, can pay the bills, eat, exercise, the times I can help others. Thanks to a friend who called this morning to chat. I love hearing her voice.
I am grateful to each of you for stopping by and especially to those of you who leave a comment. I love hearing from you.
