    Why I'm Thankful

    Why am i thankful? How could I not be? I have three beautiful children who are blessed with intelligence and talent. I have TWO ex-husbands that are really pretty decent men, just not the right ones for me (that's another topic, in another section!) I own my own business and home...

    So Incredibly Rich I Am

    Yesterday the top shelf and rail in my closet collapsed on me....with all 100 lbs of clothes and stuff on board! It was a catastrophe of epic proportions. A global eruption of devastation! It was all I could do to recover my wits when as I was backing out of the closet I...

    Gratefulness Is a Way to Get High

    It seems the more you are grateful and thankful, more positive experiences happen to you.  At least that is what I've found.  If we can see the joy in diversity, it helps bring us out of it sooner than if we allowed our diversity to sink into the mire of sadness and...

    I am thankful to God

    because he blesses me daily when he doesn't have to. I am thankful that he loves me. I am thankful that he disciplines me when I have wrong because he is the one thing I have in my life that cares enough about me. I am thankful that he gave his son so that I may have eternal...

    Thank You, God

    So tonight, I was kind of thinking on God's love and how He loves us no matter what. And I was also kind of thinking about all my faults and mistakes. I'm stubborn, I can be cowardly and selfish, I'm not exactly susceptible to change, I'm anti-social...and yet, God still loves...

    Time Was Running Out!

    Life has been a very hard and long road for the last few years. Now I've started a new job and it's been the best thing that could have happened. I went through a divorce (sadly) 3 years ago, and in the process I lost everything. I mean EVERYTHING. My home, vehicles, clothes...

    Success is getting and achieving what you want;

    Happiness is wanting and being content with what you have. It's easy to fall in to the trap of 'if only', but it's not happy people who are thankful; it's thankful people who are happy.
