My List of 'Gratitudes'

Monday I shared my life long list of to-dos.

Tuesday I shared my list of characters  prominent in my world.

Following the inspiration from MSM's blog I read yesterday, today I want to share my list of “gratitudes”. For those of you catching my misspelled/non-existent word there, note that for the sake of this blog entry, I am making that a word, a plural noun even. Yes it is my blog - so I am allowed. :)


  1. I am grateful my babies are safe and having a wonderful time on vacation. I have talked with Jas and Kass every night by phone since they have been gone. But I miss them, and I am grateful I will see them soon.
  2. I am grateful for my family and even more so as I see it shrinking with time.
  3. I am grateful for my newfound single mom blogger friends (as well as single dad bloggers) that have become an inspiration to me like ModernSingleMomma and DesperatelySeeking... who have mentioned me in recent posts of their own. You will never know how much that meant to me.
  4. I am grateful for an audience interested in reading my blog, my current passion/obsession. Knowing you are interested keeps me striving to perfect my attempts to pour out on paper/the web a small glimpse of my inner being, an intricate view of my outer world.
  5. I am grateful for intrigue that keeps me motivated to learn new things every day. I’d like to think I keep an open mind, not only to learn new skills but also to understand new or different ideals each day.
  6. (And note, these aren’t necessarily in order of importance by the way.) But I am also grateful for my salvation, my faith, and my strength that lies in Him. For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13.  I think it’s obvious through many examples in my life shared right here in my blog that I couldn’t have made it without Him.  It goes without saying; but there, I have said it.

It's good to take time out to be thankful for the good things in your life, your "blessings."  So that's my present list of 'gratitudes.'

Now it’s your turn. What is on your list of “Gratitudes” today?

I am grateful for my health.

I am grateful for my wife and my family. Also grateful for those that passed before me and paved the way!

I am grateful that I have the freedom to do what I want and the responsibility to know the consequences of those decisions.

I am grateful for those that gave their lives so that I have my freedom.

I am grateful for friends, some that I have never met, but that still influence me in a postive way.
