there’s just so much gratitude in me today. there’s so much to be thankful for.
there are still things i pray and need to work hard for to achieve, but at the same time i have also been very blessed.
i was blessed to have lived through the past year, and i am blessed with a new one to look forward to.
i was blessed with disappointments frustrations and failures, because of which i am blessed to know succes, achievement and happiness.
i was blessed with challenges that helped develop and/or change me into something better, and i am blessed with another year’s worth of challenges to further develop me.
i was blessed to have met so many wonderful people from whom i learned, and i am blessed with an opportunity to meet new ones to learn from.
i was blessed with opportunities to give, to reach out, to help, and i am
blessed with more chances to share my blessings with people who’re in need.
i was blessed with friends and family who love and accept me for me and who’re always there to back me and take care of me, and i am blessed with a chance to experience their love again and to reciprocate that love.
i was blessed to see hardships…because of which i am blessed to know that i am (still) blessed.
thank you Lord, for all these. i don’t think i’d be where i am today if not for Your greatness, guidance and mercy. i humbly lift everything—every achievement, failure, happiness, problem, heartache, joy—to You.
