gratitude monday!

When we were children we were grateful

to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time.

Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?

~G.K. Chesterton~

*****************************

As each day comes to us refreshed and anew,

so does my gratitude renew itself daily.

The breaking of the sun over the horizon

is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world.

~Adabella Radici~

***************************************

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

*********************************

Today, I am grateful for:

♠ a Monday morning that signals the beginning of another blessed week

♠ a hubby who kisses, hugs and loves me so much

♠ a pretty baby who called me mama, smiles, kisses and hugs me first thing after she wakes up

♠ a family who continues to support me in everything

♠ a job that allows me to do what I want

♠ an in-laws who help us and support us in all our endeavors

♠ friends who remind me how blessed I am.

♠ and these awards from a loveable online friend JavaQueen: Thank you so much sweetie. I would like to pass these awards to all my friends listed in my blogroll.
