I’m grateful to be alive. I don’t always say it, but it’s true. Things could have gone much worse when I had my accident. Also, as long as I’m alive, I know that things will change. Circumstances may get better, they may get worse, but they will change. I tend to look for them getting better, and I tell myself, “This, too, shall pass,” when I’m feeling really down. It doesn’t always convince me, but even when my heart doesn’t believe, my mind knows it’s true.

This, too, shall pass — this Monday, this slump, this whatever. I am alive and grateful for it.

What are you grateful for today?

  1. It’s weird, I’m grateful that the A to Z blog challenge is over, but I’m excited for next year because I’ll be better prepared, hehe! I signed up for this year kinda spur of the moment, so I felt like I was playing catch-up all month, lol! I’m also grateful I tagged along on your A to Z posts, I learned a lot from your wealth of knowledge and have a list of new authors to add to my stacks, too! πŸ˜€

    • Excellent! Last year, I was a spur-of-the-moment participant, and I completely understand. Maybe next year, I’ll actually have everything prepared ahead of time, although I doubt it.

      Glad my posts were useful. πŸ˜€

  2. Life is something to be grateful for. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. I’m grateful that my son’s worst problem right now is remembering his homework, and not remembering not to hit his friends.

    And I’m grateful for the A to Z Challenge, ’cause I learned more about my ability to write creatively in one month than I have in 34 years.

    Ah, Children! They never cease to amaze.

    I’m grateful for Life, too. Even when it wasn’t what I had expected, it was a learning experience.

    Have an awesome day, week, month, year…Life!!

    • Sometimes, I’d prefer “I love it when a plan comes together” to “It was a learning experience.” πŸ˜‰

      Thanks — and you have an awesome day, week, month, year, and life, too!!!

  5. Great reminder to be grateful for life. πŸ™‚

    • I try to think of something different to be grateful for every Monday to help start out the week right. Sometimes, I have to go with the obvious. πŸ™‚ Thanks for commenting.

  6. I’m grateful for YOU, and that you are alive too. πŸ™‚ Feel better soon, my friend.
