Extraordinary Pearls of Gratitude For Every Day Moments

I once again have forgotten to share my gratitude list with my friends, followers and fans.

I sometimes get to caught up in the every day and forget to take the time to stop and remember – my apologies. 

Sometimes I also caught up in the news of things – all the tragedies and stories surrounding this world.. It bogs me down at times. 

Let’s see what shall we call this blog.. 

Pearls of Gratitude:

1. As always my loving husband – I can’t even begin to ponder what would have happened without him during my darkest hours – he’s a rock

2. Lasting 7 years together married (July 15th our anniversary) and 12 years together total..  

3. Ordinary moments that are made special when I spend time with Shadow

4. My creative muses

5. The friends,fans and followers who voted for me during contest.. (There is still time for those who haven’t voted – contest ends 22nd)

6. A break in the humidity and heat = even though I would take heat over -30 Celsius any day – the humidity makes it hard to breath (asthma and humidity not a fun combo)

7. Another day where it was a good day – no “lows” – no “dragon” yet 🙂

8. All the great blogs I have read lately – you give me inspiration.. 

9. Completing or coming very close to completing goals

10. God’s grace and support. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend.. Have fun, be safe and God Bless!!

I want to apologize for my earlier rant – I honesty try to usually see the good in people but

it can be difficult when the bad in them hits you upside the face.  It is especially hard to

overcome that when one of the triggers of my anxiety disorder and depression is feeling

judged and ridiculed.   I am not sure why I am sharing this information, but something struck

a cord in me and said “share this story”.  Hopefully, in some small way it helps someone.

I looked through the posts in my reader about poems about depression and people dealing

with mental illnesses and I get such a feeling of connection with everyone who is trying to

“slay this dragon” on top of fighting the sting of stigma from society.

I hope that my stories, poems etc.. help others realize that they are not alone and that

sometimes even a caring stranger can lend an ear.

I want to end this night on a semi=positive note, so I will first say I took a very big step and emailed the person in charge of group and let him know how I felt and declined interest in group.  Which I did not do for a response, just to get it off my plate and off my mind – some may say it was on my plate because I wanted it to be there but seriously the baggage is not wanted and not welcome. Believe me, I have enough of my own.  I was very proud of myself for how I wrote it and was honest and somewhat diplomatic about it..

But to end of a note of gratituade – here is my cup of gratitude tea

1. A very loving and supportive husband

2. My own inner strength to find my voice

3. My creative muse and angels

4. Divine guidance and support

5. The ability to once again feel happy and excited about aspects of life

6. My dog Shadow – although he is goofy  – he is my fur baby (8 years old)

7. Smell of fresh rain on clean grass

8. Moments with my client (83 years old) – I learn more than I can say from her

9. Opportunities that present themselves to me

10. Peace of mind and acceptance for what I cannot change (a work in progress but still workable)

11. All my fans, friends and followers on this blog – THANK YOU…

12. Friends, family and people who make a single appearance

13, Waking up every morning with a chance to start over again.

Luckily I had a back up plan and could go see my client in hospital and recoup some wages!!
I was also able to go to Walmart and purchase items to organize poetry and get Shadow’s dog beds!!
It was good bye old stinky bed and hello new ones 🙂

So here is my gratitude list for today
