This is the moment to be grateful for family, friends, and strangers. Yes, strangers who have shown me in the last month kindness and words of comfort.
Just this afternoon I received a phone call from Horn of Plenty Food and Toy Drive. The owner of this group it’s also the owner of a Christian radio station. It’s a nonprofit and they have been helping the community for the past 25 years. When they call me, it was to verify I will be home. They were going to deliver a food basket. I thought I will be getting a fruit or a cheese tray. To my surprise it was an entire Christmas meal. It’s approximately $60.00 dollar on groceries including a frozen turkey, milk, and eggs. I was in disbelief since I realized they are other families who are in need. They need this kind of help. These two gentlemen were kind and generous. I begin to cry.
This act of kindness has open my eyes. No matter how bad it looks out there in our country or in the entire world we still have great people.
I will be donating the groceries to the church pantry. I feel is the right thing to do. Like I mentioned before, there are other families who can benefit from this basket. I am grateful to the person who wrote my name and give it to this organization. This act of kindness has been a blessing send by God. It makes me realize I can do more for my community and for others.

Every day as soon as I put my feet on the floor I recite my gratitude’s. I recite “I am truly grateful for _______ because______” finishing with a thank you. I do this every morning since I bought the book “Magic from Rhonda Byrne”. Also, when I go for my walks or driving in my car I love reciting my blessings. It makes me feel appreciated it for the little things I have.
I have been teaching my granddaughters to be grateful and they sound adorable when they recite their gratitude. One of them was grateful for having an ice cream cone and the other was grateful for receiving a toy.
When I feel depressed, it gets a little more difficult because my head begins to spin and I can’t find the right words. However, I keep reciting my gratitude’s until I begin to feel better.
Daily Prompt: Recite

My granddaughter enters a book competition at her school. They have 106 contestants from different grades and they choose five. She’s in fourth grade. The last day of school they have an assembly and they announce the five winners. She was excited and I can see how nervous she was. Finally they call her name and she was running to get to the front. She’s happy that her story has been printed and a copy of the book will be in the school library. She works hard to write her story, however she found that doing her own drawings was tougher.
My little author is working on her second story. She’s getting ready for the fall competition.
I’m a proud grandma.
I used to work at the grocery store for twelve years and my thanksgiving was cooking dinners for the customers until 3 pm. I would get home tired with no inspiration to prepare a meal for my own family. My husband then was the cook.
Since I’m been working at the school for the last three years everything has been changed. I get up early on Thanksgiving to preheat the oven and to start to cook for my family also to watch the Macy’s Parade.
My Christmas tree is done and just waiting to be lit up tonight. The rest of the decorations will come soon. Meanwhile, I’m enjoying my coffee and the quiet of my home.
To everyone who celebrated the holidays I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the coziness of your home, the food, the parade, the football game, and your family.
Thank you for all the good things I have and for all the good things I already have. Thank you, God for everything!
