Gratitude Sunday

Different title, same premise as this.  I wasn’t sure I’d continue to do this project but there are just too many things I need to record.  Some pleasant, some not so pleasant but all part and parcel in me growing to become the woman I need to be.

Asha, the first installment for the year is dedicated to you.   In the week past, I’m grateful for:

  • Beginning the week with a beautiful email message and video from e-pal Andi.  I’m was moved to tears that she thought about me and the video was a great way to start the week.
  • Experiencing the relief of surrender.  I pray and I pray alot.  There’s a situation at my job right now that’s causing me all kinds of anxiety.  It’s a big deal and I’m not at fault but a fellow Director is trying to make it my fault.  I admit that we both could have worked together to avoid this but that’s just the thing, he didn’t say a word when he noticed the issue then waited until he could get into trouble to say something.  At this point, now he wants to make it all mine.    I was reminded while I prayed to surrender the situation to God.  Only He can work this out on my behalf.  Once I did this, the week was pretty good, even while at work.
  • Experiencing a new ritual of early bedtime wind down.  Snow storms and cold nights have made it easy but I’ve been truly appreciating how beneficial good sleep is.
  • Being reminded that crafting is really therapeutic.
  • Being able to feed myself well.
  • Experiencing a random but totally awesome conversation with a man on the bus about the state of society and how much we should be helping each other in our communities.
  • Expanding my circle of friends.  Denise, it was so good to meet you and cheers for more years of friendship.

    This day is a gift and my response should be gratefulness! Wow, tremendous!

      Very! It was really something to be confronted with that thought. Most of the time we’re so focused on what’s not going right, we forget every day is a gift.

    First off your blog design is gorgeous! Very inspiring.

    So glad that you are continuing on with your Gratitude posts. They all cause me to reflect all on the things of my week, good and bad.

    It says something about you, that when I see beautiful videos and meditations that I think of you. 🙂

    May you use to your strength to get through your work situation.

      Thanks Andi. 😀 I cant take credit for the theme — it’s the free Suits Theme on WP and I used an image from Knitpicks freebies library.

      I really appreciate your vote of confidence; sometimes it’s rough staying positive in these situations. But God is good; I’m sure he’ll help me.
