Gratitudes A to Z (and a Special mention to a Blogger)

Note: This post is inspired by Shar who writes at this blog below:

She has done some gratitude posts about her daily life which have inspired me to stop and think about everything I have in my life. Thank you Shar for making me stop and think about the good things in my life. So often it is easy to focus on the negative even when so many positive things are already in your life. I encourage you all to check out her awesome blog. My personal gratitudes of my current life are listed below:

Gratitudes (Things I am Thankful For in My Life):

Air to breathe and feel as I walk and run around outside.
Best friend who understands me and listens when I speak.
Computer for writing, do schoolwork, and so much more.
Drexel, the university which I attend and work at most days.
Earnings from my job which pay the bills and so much more.
Food to feed me physically and in so many other ways.
God to guide me and teach me how to be a better person.
Housing to keep me dry and protect me from the elements.
Iced coffee to keep me energized and for me to enjoy regularly.
Jeans that cover my bottom and make me feel good about me.
Kitties to keep me company even when I am home alone.
Love from others around me to keep me from feeling lonely.
Mother, who gave birth to me and raised me and my brother.
Niece and nephew who remind me how precious children are.
Organized shelves and closets. I like being able to find things.
Phone to keep me connected to those I love who are far away.
Quartz and other jewelry, especially earrings. Makes me feel pretty.
Rock music, I love the pounding beat, screams, and singing bands do.
Singing, it is a vocal medium which I can express myself through.
Television, it entertains me and helps me relax before I go to sleep.
Umbrellas to keep the rain from ruining my hair and wetting me.
Vibrant flowers which cheer me up when I see them outside lately.
Water to cleanse me from the dirt and quench my thirst each day.
X-rays and other medical equipment which check our health.
You all here, I love reading the comments people make on my blogs.
Zippers, which keep pants from showing too much to the world.

There are so many more things I love about life, this is just a snapshot of the things from A to Z that excite me about life at this point.

Oh wow! What a great list of gratitudes! I really enjoyed reading them! Sometimes we don't realize how grateful we are for something until we dont have it anymore... even the smallest things! So it's very important that we acknowledge them very often! I hope your week is going great!

XO Shar!

Amazing list! I need to stop and remember what I'm grateful for more often. Thanks for reminding me of that.
