Today I feel like enumerating down the blessings I have. Things that I am thankful for. I remember what Bo Sanchez wrote in one of his articles, ''instead of complaining, why won't you find the blessings that are right in your eyes''. Sometimes people tend to just look at the bad side of everything, well, it's easier to spot those wrongs/negatives when we are the downside moments of our lives. It doesn't help anyway. So why focus on that? At times we are just burying ourselves on things that really don't help. Pardon me I'm actually talking to myself.
I've got hundreds of things to be thankful for, and I'm going to enumerate few of them today. I want to focus on these blessings that my Father has been bestowing me. I'm sorry Lord sometimes I fail to see these blessings.
Abba Father, I thank you for:
- Your love and grace.
- Keeping me safe and perfectly healthy.
- The gift of life.
- The gift of family. My strength and inspiration.
- For my father and mother who are always there to listen to me. Who love and care for us. For keeping them healthy.

There are still a lot of things that I am thankful for. If it should be specific. This page cannot handle it.

P.S. The title means ''thankful'' . It is a Spanish term.
