What Are You Grateful For? - a tag

Rachel tagged me with this meme: "What are you grateful for?". (Or, if you prefer, what are you complaining about?)
Thanks, Rachel. For me, I always feel better after reflecting on things that I am thankful for. Here are some on my list:

I am grateful for yesterday because I felt the coming of Spring.

I am grateful for having raised three wonderful boys who gave my husband and me no problems, whatsoever, along the way.

I am grateful for having grandsons (I am still desperately praying for a granddaughter!). They remind me that life goes on and on and on.

I am grateful for my health. It assures me of more years ahead that I can enjoy the presence of my relatives: children, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles; and friends.

I am grateful for my sanity. It gives me strength to think and weigh things that come my way so I could lay them in their proper places.

I am grateful that I have A Supreme Being to believe in, that way, I can always find the right reason why everything that is happening within and around me happens.

I am grateful for the ticking on the clock. It reminds me that i have to do what I have to do because the last second will never come back.

In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things: Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.) Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.) After all everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to share, please follow the appropriate link and do so: “Are You Grateful?”, “Complain Complain Complain.”

Like you I am grateful for a lot of things. On top of the list are good health, a loving family, caring friends online and off, a fulfilling job. And I guess we also have to be thankful for the challenges, frustrations and problems that come our way ... these are the ones that make us tough and energized and "alive!" Hwag lang sobra ha.
