Today I'm grateful for rain. It washes away the bad and brings in the good, it renews the ground and the plants and gives us drinking water. Every rain is like a rebirth. I also love the rain because it reminds me of wonderful times in my life. My husband and I went on our first date because it was raining. We said I love you the first time while it rained. It rained on our wedding night and on our honeymoon. I am so thankful for rain! I love sleeping while it is raining too :)

I've seen this Thanksgiving Poem show up all over the internet and although I do not know it's origin, I felt today being a Thanksgiving I'm so very thankful for that it is an important one to share this:
I am thankful for the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed.

I am thankful for the mess to clean after a party because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.

I am thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

I am thankful for my shadow that watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

I am thankful for a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning, and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.

I am thankful to all the complaining I hear about the government because it means we have freedom of speech.    

I am thankful for the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking and that I have been blessed with transportation.
I am thankful for my huge heating bill because it means I am warm.

I am thankful for the lady behind me in church that sings off key because it means that I can hear.

I am thankful for the pile of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to wear.

I am thankful for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been capable of working hard.

and...

I am thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive.

The 3-minute Chakra Test




The 3-minute Chakra Test 
Try it yourself and check out your results.

According to ancient Hindu science, there are 7 Chakras, or 'energy centers' in your body, starting at your tailbone and ending at the tip of your head.

They act as your energetic ecosystem, and each of them influences a certain aspect of your life.

For example Chakra 1 influences your career and finances, Chakra 2 influences your sexuality, Chakra 3 your self-esteem, and so on.

Chakras can either be strong or weak, and their state determines your circumstances in the area of life that they influence.

So for example if your Chakra responsible for your intuition is strong, you'll enjoy highly sharpened intuitive senses...

But if it's weak, you may feel totally disconnected from your intuition.

The question is, how are YOUR Chakras affecting your life?

Which are weak, and which are strong?

Just answer a few simple questions in this 3-minute Chakra Test, and you'll get your results instantly:

The 3-minute Chakra Test

And don't be surprised when the answers are an almost exact match to your life circumstances. They
were for me :)

All the best,

Ashley Grant

P.S. I'm told that over 200 000 people worldwide have taken this test. It's designed by Carol Tuttle, one of the world's most respected Chakra experts.

Today I'm grateful for the clothes in my closet. It's easy to laugh thinking about how I always complain I have nothing to wear when the truth is my closet is bursting with clothes. I am so very grateful that I have clothes in my closet that I can argue with myself about matching and mismatching. I'm thankful for the sweaters that warm me in the winter and the tank tops I can wear in the summer. I'm thankful for all the clothes that keep me covered all year long.

Today I'm grateful for my husband. He is my rock, my love, my life. He is the reason I became a writer because he was the first person in my life to tell me it was okay to pursue my dreams. I love him more every day and although sometimes he drives me a little bit crazy, there is no other man I could see myself with. I'm grateful for the way he helps me through my problems, the way he treats me and the way he loves me. I love you Jeremy and I'm thankful for you baby!
