    What Blessings Did You Have Today?

    I'm starting a new thread, in the hope to set a positive aura. Counting your blessings is a great way to realize what you have (as opposed to take focus on what you don't have). Since every day is a new day, each day presents a different blessing than the previous days. The list may not be complete for the day but at least what you remember is important.

    Ok, I'll start off...


    My blessings today:
    - someone lent me money to survive tomorrow
    - no one is sick among us in the family
    - i get to use the internet from an internet cafe
    - we've been getting used to the dark that probably by the next electric bill, the bill will be much lower
    - climate cool enough that having no electric fan is just fine

    Good idea C5.

    - My auntie in hospital is better than first thought.
    - I'm approaching the final stages of a big project at work and, today, got the seal of approval from someone I respect.
    - And my cats are using their fancy new water fountain without splashing all over the floor.

    My blessings for the day.

    My mother is a lot better than she was.
    My husband is recovering from cancer.
    And I have a roof over my head.

    My amplifier gave up the ghost just before I need it for concert tomorrow. A friend lent me his.
    My volume pedal broke, managed to find and buy a new one.
    Both sound better than the old ones.
    Had two phone calls telling me that the C.D's I made for church services work really well.
    I don't have any debts. (A great blessing that!!)
    I am warm, dry and fed.
    I could go on and on because my glass is ALWAYS half full.

    - found favor with the landlord for not throwing us out the house for not being able to pay 3 months' rent

    - found money in a pocket meant to be laundered (will survive the day)

    - mom called to ask the kids for vacation

    - woke up at 3am to do the laundry (it's at that time the water is strong

    @sylvie, it's really great to see the glass half FULL.

    I am glad blessings have reached you all.

    My blessings are.

    We own our own house.
    We are due to have a mild Christmas.

    Cheers
