30 Things I’m Thankful For Today

‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding. – Alice Walker

I really love this quote. “Thank You” is a beautiful expression to show happiness, satisfaction, and gratitude towards someone or something. Saying Thank You will not only give you a happy mood but most especially, it will bring good vibes to the person you said your Thank You for.

Being grateful is such a wonderful feeling. It makes us realize how blessed we truly are for everything, especially the little things that make the best in our life.

Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it. -Ralph Marston

Gratefulness, contentment, and humility are among the top values I try to teach my children. Every night when we go to bed, we say our “Thank You List” as part of our bedtime prayer. You wouldn’t believe how even my two-year-old son recites his own list. It’s sweet, funny, and always surprising at the same time. 😉

Today, let me take this opportunity to say Thank You for the people, things, events, and anything that has helped me in some ways, especially in blogging. I know there are so many things to be thankful for, and I’m honestly torn between writing the great blessings I have or just stick to the little simple things that make me smile. 🙂


Oh, you know what, it doesn’t matter. The important thing is recognizing these wonderful things and appreciate their existence. 🙂

Let’s start!

30 Things I am Thankful for Today

I’m thankful for the gift of life today. For another beautiful day to live and experience all the glorious things God has given us. Thank you, Lord,  for waking me up to a lovely morning. 🙂 (Though actually, I think I was woken up by my son’s bed wetting. LOL)

I’m thankful for the lovely weather today, it gives me a positive mood to start my day, to start writing.

I’m thankful that’s it’s Friday and we have exciting things to do with my kids today. Hint: It’s HALLOWEEN!!! I’m thankful that my daughter has her costume ready, which is her most favorite character these past months. It’s not Elsa, I tell you. 😛 I’m thankful that my son didn’t mind if he will only use  an old Superman outfit from his cousin. Haha

I’m thankful for my family’s support, for always being there for my kids.

I’m thankful for my children who give me the strength and inspiration to keep going. Ate Zooey and baby Zion, you sweetie are the best little people I have in my life. Your sweetness and craziness molded me to become a better person. Thank you, my little darlings!

I’m thankful for my dear friends who make efforts to keep in touch despite our busy lives. Thank you for sticking around despite having HUNDREDS of canceled plans to go out. Haha

I’m thankful for my blog for keeping me sane. For tolerating my drama, crazy stories, boring writings, and hundreds of drafts. Haha Thank you for providing me the little space to write my heart out and for not judging my feelings. Thank you for this humble online home where I could share our journey, my dreams, and frustrations. Without you, I’d be long crazy.

I’m thankful for my online friends who show genuine support and appreciation to the things I share on the blog, most especially to my blogging family – Cebu Blogging Community, YOU GUYS ARE THE COOLEST!!!

I’m thankful for the recognition and trust given to me as a blogger. Thank you Bloggys 2015 for my blog’s first ever Philippine Blogging Awards Nomination for Family & Relationships Category. Thank you to Cebu Blogging Community for giving me the role of CBC Lead Representative for Mommy Blogging Niche. I feel so legit now. Haha Seriously, these things are big for me. You give me the confidence and motivation to do better, to become better.

I’m thankful for my blog’s first sponsors who gladly invited me to collaborate with them in promoting their brands. Thank you for seeing the potential in me and giving me the opportunity to work for you and earn extra doing what I really love to do. You ignite my passion in writing even more. 🙂

I’m thankful for the success of my blog renovation. I love how everything is so perfect for me now. I am more inspired and excited to blog. 🙂

I’m thankful for all the resources I have and all the help I received in setting up our new blog.

I’m thankful to Mai of MaiLoveParis who designed this special theme for me. I am overjoyed and beyond grateful for her work. She was able to create exactly what I wanted my blog to be. Everything is perfection! I super love it! And her excellent communication and customer service is the best! Thank you so much for your amazing work, Mai! 🙂

I am thankful to CoffeeMags for hosting my blog. Their price offer is amazing! Super sulit, especially since they offered me a free trial for a week to get around WordPress. It’s perfect for those who wish to test the waters first. And their excellent service is a plus! 🙂

I’m thankful to Pam of Hey, Miss Adventures! for referring me over to CoffeeMags. Without your recommendation, I wouldn’t have bumped into them.  🙂

I’m thankful to Ian of Pinoymetrogeek for helping out on my domain issues. No more weird url redirects. Haha 🙂

I’m thankful to one of my blog sponsors who was timely in sending their payment through Paypal, just in time when I needed Paypal funds for my premium theme purchase. hihi

I am thankful for my son Zion who was so patient with me today while I was working on the blog. I think I was on the computer almost the entire day, but he never interrupted with “whiny” requests for Youtube videos. Well, he did interrupt, but he was more understanding and patient every time I deny his requests. Thank you, baby! We’ll watch the Spiderman videos later, okay? 😉

I am thankful for YOU. Yes, YOU! Thank you for reading my blog. For visiting my small space in the web, our little online home. For allowing me to share our stories, our roller-coaster journey.

I am thankful for everything that I have now, for all that I have overcome in the past, and for the many things coming my way – the people, experiences, learning, frustrations, dreams, joys, and sorrows. Everything that has molded me to become the person I am today.

Today, I am so grateful.
