The Queen's Meme #35 ~ The Gratitude Meme



Sometimes silly.
Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box.
Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours!



Sometimes life hands you pomegranates. You get wiser. Sometimes life hands you that icky lemonade. You get stickier. Sometimes life hands you a boatload of people who either enhance your journey in lovely ways or rock the boat off course just for the hell of it. You get an oar and row in your own direction. It happens to all of us. Either way, there's gratitude to be found if you're willing to look. Sometimes the conflicts are indeed blessings in disguise - you just don't know it yet. Sometimes the storm IS the thing you will one day bless while you wait for calmer seas.
Maybe not today, but someday.
So find some patience and hang on.
We all have something to be grateful for one way or another.
I found a few things this week. I hope you did too.

The Gratitude Meme

1. What are you most grateful for when you first wake up in the morning?

Nope, I have thanked everyone

6. Do you say grace at mealtime?
Sometimes I do.
7. Name one thing you take for granted everyday.
Time...I always think I have more time than I really have.

8. Have you ever looked back at your life and realized that something you thought was a bad thing was actually a blessing in disguise?
Well yes...haven't we all?

God
My husband

I bet the pomegranates would be good in the lemonade.

I loved your gratitudes. Makes you stop and think about all we have and how blessed we really are. I still remember with fondness my favorite teacher, Mrs. Condie. She understood my shyness and was always on my side.

I loved your gratitudes. Having a list like that makes you stop and think how truly blessed we are and how much we have to be grateful for. I still remember with fondness my favorite teacher, Mrs. Condie. She understood my shyness and was always on my side.

Great answers Pam, and loved the teacher believing in you. So many people underestimate what power that kind of support has for a child.
