Thanking the Creator..........
 
It seems like there's not a day that goes by where I'm not thanking the Creator for something. I guess one true barometer that would indicate how thankful we are for the blessings in our lives, would be imagining what life would be like without certain blessings. I think I would be pretty miserable if I couldn't dance or sing. What are you thankful for??

Ditto those sentiments FF!
I'm thankful for all the blessings in my life, like my granddaughter and her good health and happiness. Much much more to be thankful for but I won't get carried away here. :)

You can get carried away if you want to.....that's what this thread is for!!

Where are all the thankful ones? Someone complained about the negative nature of my other thread, "What gets on your nerves?" I felt guilty and started this thread. Come on all you good people, let's show our gratitude!

K I'll go!!! *L* I'm really thankful for such a great family. I am grateful for a mom who had to know where I was at all times, who wanted to know who I would be with, what time to expect me home, and waiting for me when I got home! It was SOOOOOO annoying back then...but now I realize what a great parent she was and how much she sacraficed raising me on her own. I had wonderful grandparents and I have a great Uncle who's my good friend as well as family.

I am also luck to have a wonderful husband who I'm sure everyone is sick of reading about!!!! *L* I realize...you gotta quit trying to find the right person.....when you quit looking....and start living your own life.....they'll come along! :)

THERE!!!!!!!!!!! Oh yeah, I'm love my puppies too......even though they're JUST A MESS!!!!

Okay pws.commers....I know SOMEBUNNY else besides me has lots to be thankful for!!!!!!!!!!! THANKSGIVING IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!!!!!! AND SO IS SANTA>......and he's watching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm very thankful for my family, for my mom for not giving up on me, for my kids growing up FINALLY and not being too screwed up, and especially for my sweet little grandbabies.

I'm also thankful for the creator making me who I am and helping me overcome low selfesteem. I'm thankful for a few really good friends and lots of other good friends. I'm thankful for my new position, for finally having a good car, for getting my credit cards paid off, and for being able to go to as many Chris Cagle concerts as I can! :p

I'm also thankful for Furiously-Fancy paying me when the orders are done!:lol:

Gratitude..
 
The past year has been trying in terms of romantic relationships and friendships. These experiences have taught me more about myself, so it is good.

Anywho, with that...I am thankful for my family. For always being there when I needed someone to talk to, or help me out in a jam.

Being converted to permanent employee status rather than term the past 3.5 years. Job security.

All the people who have helped me get my Jingle Dress outfit together when I FINALLY decided to dance this year. I have always wanted to dance and would find some sort of excuse not to make the commitment. Once I took plunge, the dresses, feathers, advice came easily.

Being able to have university costs covered by my band. I can start working towards my degree.

There are a lot of things but those are the ones that are in my head right now. :D

kiyaanii mom 09-17-2004 03:52 PM

I'm thankful for my parents who made sure to teach me the Navajo way. And to show me a world of diverse people.

I'm thankful for my wonderful and loving husband who takes care of me and the kids the best he can.

I'm thankful that my beautiful children are healthy, kind and giving. I hope they always follow the good path or know how to get back to it.

I'm thankful for my grandparents who were loving teachers and gave unconditional support.

I'm thankful for my job, which gives me the power to do the things in life that I love.

I'm thankful for my sisters who always keep me grounded. And to all my aunties who respect the adult I have become.

I'm thankful for my dear friends who keep me standing when times are tough.

I'm thankful for the holy people who give me strength and happiness.

CarMae 09-17-2004 06:30 PM

This is such a good thread....The thing that i'm most thankful for is my family. They have always been there for me. And they never miss an important part in my life and I can always go to them for advise or anything that I need to know. And for them, i'm forever grateful.

:Thinking ... it's only September and we're already giving thanks??? lol jk I agree that you should be thankful EVERYDAY :D

I thank the creator for being blessed with awesome parents; for the huge, loving family that I have; for my friends and having them in my life; for the ability to dance jingle; definitely in appreciation for all the other gifts bestowed upon me and those I love and of course, for well-being.
