It's good to look at the year behind us, and see all that we can thank God for. I would just like to thank him that he gave me one more year in my life to live and improve upon myself, and filled it with joyful moments and gave me whatever I asked for. He really did give me a lot in the last one year and I am very very thankful for that. Above all, I am thankful to Him for having providing me a place to live, food to eat, clothes to cover myself, even though I don't have a job. There are millions on this earth who have not even a grain of rice, and just living on dirt. Even in childhood, I have seen so many children on the streets, waiting outside marriage functions, and once people throw the banana leaves with left over food into the garbage on the roadside, these boys would just remove those leaves and eat out of them. It's a horrible site to look at and even now when I think of it, I have tears in my eyes. At least I am thankful, that I am having good food to eat at home twice a day, and I am not one of those kids or beggars who eat leftovers of other people. What a terrible sight...? Above all, I would also thank God for teaching me hard lessons of love through testing moments of my life this year. I have to put a check on my anger and I shall pray to Him to overcome this limitation of mine and increase more love, patience and compassion. But above all, whether it's New year or mid-year, I shall thank Him for this precious moment of life that I am living, how ever I maybe, but I am healthy, and have my eyes, hands and feet intact with all my organs working fine this far, and my mobility is also blessed only His grace. So this is what I would thank God for... :-)

I'm thankful for God's saving grace. I'm thankful that my family is well, that God has always provided me with whatever I need for life, health and strength. I'm thankful that I have a job and that it's not too taxing. I'm thankful that my cats are well. The list is endless, so I'll leave it at that.

I have so much to be thankful for in my life this year. It has had many ups and downs and times that I didn't know if I could keep on going, but God has given me strength, love, grace, and everything else that I have needed to live the life He has given. This has been the first year of my marriage to my best friend in the whole world and I am thankful that He brought her into my life! We were also blessed to have our first child 4 months ago. He is definitely our miracle baby! There are so many things that I could mention but time and space won't allow. I just know that God has blessed me beyond my wildest imaginations and I am forever grateful!!! May God bless you tremendously!

This year is a blessed year for me too, actually every year is a blessing for me. am thankful to our Father in Heaven for the gift of life that I have every day, that I was able to have another year of my life, another Christmas time to celebrate, and another New year. To God be the Praises and Thanksgiving always. Year 2009, God gave me a lot of trials but He never leave nor forsake me. He show me His way and lead me to His path. This coming year 2010, I pray that God will continue to shower me and my family with His blessings, and that we will share every blessings that God has given us.

I am thankful to God for so many things it would take me all day to discuss it. I would have to say most recently I am thankful for almost getting over a terrible sickenss. First I had a cold, than I got the flu and now I am fighting off brochitis. But I know within his graces within the next few days I will be as good as new and be able to spend time with my girls on their hoilday vacation from school. Tomorrow is their last day until next year and I am looking foward to them being around as I know time is so precious and they are getting so big that someday this wont happen anymore:( Take care and nice topic to discuss as well.
