Thankfulness - Gratitude List - Linkup 7

Written for the Alphabet Salad Gratitude Linkup

And Gratitude or Thankfulness also ties in very nicely with the letter T at ABC Wednesday

So here's my list (in no particular order):

1. Thankful that I passed my full driver's license test. Sitting academic tests is easy-peasy but driving tests is a hard task for me. But it went so well and at a point during the test I actually found myself thinking, I'm really enjoying this.

2.  Thankful for a random act of kindness. I got a free cheese scone because they forgot about mine in the toaster, made me wait a long time and then eventually found they burnt it! - So I got a brand new scone, beautifully toasted and my money back.

3. Thankful that I have finally learned to receive. If the cheese scone incident had occurred a year ago, I would've insisted they keep the money. But my word this year "Abundance" had changed my perspective on things. I've finally learned that in receiving we bring joy to the giver. Refusing their kindness robs them of the joy of giving. Abundance also comes in small packages and when we receive graciously we also send a message to the Universe that we are open to receiving. And so the abundance flows!

4. Thankful that the fire alarm at work turned out to be nothing significant. Also thankful I work on one of the lower floors so it's not a long way down to exit the building.

5. Thankful that my daughter and her boyfriend dropped by and cleaned my car.

6. So thankful that my blog has been given awards from some awesome bloggers - but that's a post for another day.

And this quote jumped out at me today

 The thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings
― Henry Ward Beecher


Write your own list and share it below.

Have a day when the abundance just flows your way.

Warm Regards

  5. Hi Suzy, I like your gratitude list! Yes, it hurts when we want to give, but they don't want to receive. Congratulations on your driver's license. I get nervous doing that test!

    1. Thanks Ni. So true, when your gift is either refused or accepted ungraciously it leaves you quite confused. I'm so glad I don't have to sit that test again. Huge relief. Thanks so much for visiting.
