I waited with bated breath as my sister shakes the bag, then puts her hand inside it and swish the pieces of paper around a little. Finally, she withdraws her hand and opens the piece of paper to reveal the blog that I’m grateful for today:
I love Grace and I am extremely happy to know this wonderful being. She is a woman after God’s heart and the beautiful name of her blog was inspired by Psalms 23. You can visit her About page to learn more about the woman behind the blog.
Grace is multi-talented. She writes poems, stories, takes exceptional photos, fixes pipes, writes wonderful book reviews, maintains a garden, and she builds snowcats! Yes, I kid you not! She is really good with her hands. 😊

Grace is also a Criminal Minds and Spencer Reid fan and we spent quite some time talking about the show and the character two weeks or so ago. If you haven’t visit Grace today, pop in for one. I promise you that you won’t regret it. 💙
I am way behind when it comes to writing posts and sorting out my drafts. Also, I am behind in reading some blogs including the blog that I am thankful for today…
Suzanne Gunter McClendon is a Christian who enjoys photography, digital art, fiber crafts such as crocheting and knitting. She is also an avid reader. You can read all about her on her About page.
McClendon blogs about book reviews, medical issues, life, and holidays among many other things and she also participate in many WP challenges. At the moment, blogging has to take a backseat for the family is dealing with a serious health issue where it concerns David, so all prayers are kindly appreciated.
It’s Thursday! And this is the Thursday that I’m going to start showing my appreciation for the blogs that I follow like I said I wanted to do last month. To recap: I wrote down all of the names of the blogs that I follow on pieces of paper, put them into a bag, shake it up and had my sister choose.
So today, I’m grateful for…
I just caught up with Akhila over on Words and Notion. I’m guilty of not keeping up with her blog for the Reader is kind of messed up and all the blogs I follow doesn’t always show up.
Akhila is a Quality Assurance professional and she makes words dance off the page with her thought-provoking poems. I find her Psychic Science posts intriguing and her Female Behavior series convincing.
She sometimes features posts in her native Malayalam, a language I which I can understand! She has a book out now and it’s available on Amazon.
I have some more catching up to do, but I am thankful for this blog.
I follow some pretty amazing blogs and I want to show how much I appreciate all of the unique bloggers who light up my face on a weekly basis.
It’ll take me some time to jot down the names of all the blogs I follow, then I’m going to put the names in a bag, shake it up, randomly select a name, and thank the blogger every other week or so.
In the meantime, keep up the wonderful blogging.
Today, I just want to share three of my favorite quotes on being thankful:

It’s easy to focus on the things that we don’t have and complain about it, instead of being thankful and content with the things that we do have.
I know I always say this, but I am thankful for life; that I am breathing because I did not have to wake up this morning. I am grateful for life’s little moments because with everything going on in the world right now, life is fleeting. I am grateful for my family, my friends, and my co-workers. I am eternally grateful for our Savior. My sister just brought me a small token and I am very grateful for it. ❤
Gratitude improves our lives and that’s why we should be grateful for every living moment. For me, every day is World Gratitude Day!
