Tonight I must say that I am grateful that my son's emergency room trip went better then expected and he will fine. I am also very grateful for my three kid's, a roof over my head, a car that runs to get me too and from. I am soo grateful to be making money from home and able to raise the baby. I am grateful that my kid's father (the teenagers Dad) is in thier life again and helping more. I am grateful for MyLot for paying us to have these discussions & be able to meet new people and in a respectful and professional way express ourselves. THANK BE TO THE ALMIGHTY One for it all ; ] Many blessings to all.

I am going to pick one thing and that is to be alive. everything else is a blessing for me. I know life is not promised to any of us. so,with that said I am grateful to have life on earth To be able to hear my child's voice another day and to know I could make her life better.

I'm grateful for a good family that isn't poor but rather middle class! I'm grateful for my own transportation and a working computer and internet connection so that I may mylot in high speed! :) I'm also grateful that I'm off of school for a week break, and that my family and I are about to go sit down and eat some delicious food at a restaurant I am currently unsure of! Regardless, it will be great and when I get back home, I'm mylotting some more.

Sounds awesome!! Where did you end up eating? I too think it's great to have internet access & the computer or phones to be able to utilize the internet. I am in school myself and unfortunetly I am not on break but grateful that I have the opportunity again to now attend college for my bachelors degree. I just graduated with my Associates Degree in September. It felt good at my age to accomplish my degree! I was very happy and look forward to my next two years in college.

I think I am just grateful that i am able to find answer to something. I would already have this as a sign of confirmation on what i have been worried about. Maybe it is time that i step back a little and just not mind or care because i would be hurt so much.

I am not exactly sure what your comment is about? It's always a great idea to take a step back but only because you are going to try to take a minute to collect your thoughts, maybe see thing's from a different point of view and find more clairty before jumping into something. But you comment confuses me with what it has to do with my topic of "What are you grateful for". You said that you are grateful for being able to answer something. That is great too and something we don't think to be grateful for too often. Many cannot read or write to be able to use MyLot to dot his and earn money or connect with others. Many may not have arms or hands and are physically unable to write to answer or somet have mental illnesses and or cannot talk and are unable to answer to anything at all. So being able to answer something is a great thing to be thankful for.

I am grateful to notice that i have many things to be greateful to THE ALMIGHTY CALL LOVING CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE for. a few months ago even, i was to mentally ill to be able to notice. so much time was waisted during that time that i could have been counting my blessing and enjoying them. nevermind though, i am back connected with THE ALL LOVE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE. are things perfect? no. is my illness gone? no. are there bad days? yes. but there are more better days now, and more to come. much love, peace, and blessing to you and yours. great post.

That is a great thing. I am happy that you were able to reconnect again. I think at some point we all suffer from some time of life experience or mental thought that takes some of us away from God & its teachings. That's okay. I believe most learn great lessons by going through these experiences and are that much more appreciative when they come back to realization. I take medication every day to deal with my chemical inbalances in my brain. So I can relate. I wish you all the best.

I am happy for you and your kid. I wish him well. i am always grateful to the Lord whenever I close my eyes to sleep at night. I lived a whole day full of purpose and learning. Learning things for free is one of the best thing I an thanksful for. In some country, it requires you to pay huge amount of money just to learn but I don't.I am gratefull for all the wonderful people that surrounds me.

Learning thing's for free is awesome. I think we tend to forget that it costs in other countries and even when it's bad in America it is much much worse in other countries. I am also grateful for wonderful people in my life and every day the news I meet as I work or visit places to shop or eat. I find people very fascinating creatures of our great heavenly father.

i have a few friends at the moment who are not well, with their positive cancer results coming back, for me I am just so grateful that I am healthy and can survive in a comfortable way of life, I don't want to be rich just happy and healthy.

Exactly! Our health is def. a blessing. Even when we are sick and I feel whiney and complian I do have to remind myself that it could be worse. I've got several people I love fighting cancers, bad hearts etc. It is hard to watch them hurt, suffer and cry. So to be blessed with health I think we can also use that to help other's by being there, by holding thier hand and also speaking out on thier causes to help cure things. HEALTH IS AMAZING & GOD IS GOOD!

I was talking about that during my diiner two hours ago with my husband and son,I was telling my son that we have to be gratefull for all what we have,and I told him that I was gratefull to the Lord first who is the one to provide a job and money to my husband to eat,and then I am gratefull to my husband for being as good father,son,brother,cousin,friend and husband. I am gratefull that you gave me the opportunitty to vent my feelings on this great discussion. Blesses I thank Thee first because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed. ~Matthew Henry

WOW I loved that quote from Matthew Henry. I am going to put that up on my Facebook. How inspirational. I am glad you liked my post. It is a positive one and I think we need more of that daily. Not only is it good to be thankful for ourselves but for other's and to see all the different reasons everyone is thankful. Your family is blessed and it sounds like you are happy and in love. That in itself is a great blessing. GBY
