Gearing Up For 2006 - Day 9

Almost there, guys! It's day nine and it's going to be heartwarming to see some of the answers. Today's question:

For what I am grateful?

I am grateful for so many things: God's grace, family support, a challenging career, decent health, etc.

But the thing that I am most grateful for is my children. They are my motivating factor for everything that I do. I am head over heels in love with them and I appreciate them for the wonderful human beings that they are. Just looking at the world through their eyes has restored some of my childlike wonder and astonishment. Nothing is quite as special when they are not around. And I am so proud to be their mother.

    I am grateful for my son.He was born severely premature and I was told he wouldn't live. He is a wonderful 7 year old.He is very smart and talented and makes life interesting. I am also grateful that my dad is still with us. He had a bout with Cancer. He won round one but it's back. I am grateful for every moment I have with him


    But most of all, my ability to write. I often take it for granted but I do not think I would be able to be where I am mentally, physically and spiritually without my talents.

    thank you Lord!

  3. and pS to anonymous. Children are nothing but a blessing. i often refer to my son as my seraphim of love.

  4. I am most grateful for LIFE. I am blessed to know the Creator (and hunger after Him), to have a wonderful, zany family and friends, good health...so many other things I could name. I am blessed to know that there is more in store for me if I will just trust & obey. Life is good!
    Peace & light everyone!

  5. Hello Nikki,

    I found my way here from K.O. Johnson's blog and boy am I glad I did. I went into the archives and read each post in response to the questions and found the whole process intriguing.

    I'm grateful for so many things that I could go on forever. Right this second, as always, I'm most grateful for my son who is 16 and I assure you, you only love them more the longer you have them and the relationship simply gets deeper and you love having them around even more every day so enjoy while it lasts. I'm also very grateful for the internet which is allowing me to "know" people I might otherwise never even know exist...what a gift!

    I'll be back a lot, so find time to post as often as you can okay?

  6. Hello again Nikki,
