I Am Grateful For.................

Here is my gratitude list for today:

  • I'm always grateful for my pet cat - who is right now in one of the bedrooms sitting on top of one of the dressers!

  • I am grateful for the fact that I have air conditioning and its on now because the current temperature outside is 94 degrees!

  • I am grateful to have a fully working refridgerator and freezer because it wasn't so long ago that I didn't - because now I have a nice glass full of icy cold water!

  • I am grateful for the food that is in my refridgerator now

  • I am grateful for my house that I LOVE with its front and back porch and the garden that I have started!

  • I am grateful for the fact that I have a washing machine in the basement so that I can do laundry at home instead of having to have to go to a laundomat!

  • I am grateful for my Dell computer and the fact that I am able to be online!

As you (and I) can see - I have a lot of things to be grateful for!

"Footsteps In The Sand"

Here is a very inspiring poem! I often remember it when I'm feeling down or depressed. If you have never seen this poem or have never heard of this poem, I hope it inspires you as well. We all need inspiration at times!

Footsteps In The Sand

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand:
one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him
he looked back, at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it:
"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:
"My son, My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you,
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Eddie Izzard!

Sometimes when I'm feeling depressed or I'm just feeling down I like to watch shows that make me laugh!

I have a tape of Eddie Izzard called "Dress To Kill". I think that he is a very funny guy and laughing at his comedy routine has cheered me up and kept me going many a time.

Before this I had never really heard of him before!

Words of Advice: If you are feeling, sad, depressed or just feeling "down" find something that makes you laugh! It could be a funny tv show - I like to watch shows with comedians in them.

So you know what that means! It's time to make another list of the things that I am grateful for!

Here Is Another Example Of The Universe Bringing Me Signs Of Abundance!

The Law Of Attaction

I am constantly striving to make the law of attraction work for me. Here is an example of one of the ways that it has manifested itself:

When it came time to renew my monthly cellphone plan there was a promotion being promoted by my cellphone carrier which gave cellphone users an extra $10 credit when you renewed your cellphone plan - which I gladly did!

That extra $10 credit gave me more daytime hours for my cellphone PLUS it gave me an extra week before my cellphone bill was due! Something that I highly welcomed!
