Year 2009's Footprints: Counting My Blessings

Share to others:
Pardon the mess.

This entry may not be related to my blog's category but since Christmas is coming soon, I'd like to take this opportune time to thank God for all the things He gave to me this year 2009.

Year 2009 will soon be ending and thinking about it made me look back to my past achievements and blessings. I always made sure to count my blessings before the end of the year but I'll make an early post because I am going to join Online Mommy's Corner Thanksgiving Contest. Well, since I do it every year, why not take this opportunity, I might win something.

So what am I thankful of?

  1. I am not thankful of the 2009 recession that happened early this year which affected almost globally. Actually, it all started December 2007 but it was only realized by the whole world last December 2008 - okay, I'm not quite sure about it but that's what I've heard. Anyways, what I am thankful of is that where I currently work, here in Saudi Arabia we weren't affected big time. I am thankful because even when the world is at crisis, our company gave us an increase in our salary in order for us to afford the price hike in the market.
  2. I am always thankful to thank God for a great family I have. A loving and understand wife and cute and cuddly son who continues to grow.
  3. I am thankful because God continues to bless us and provide everything that we need. My wife got a great job offer where she gets to enjoy her work and was able to excel more on her career as a Dentist.
  4. I am thankful to God because he blessed us a great vacation in Hongkong. We really enjoyed our time there in Hongkong. I was able to fulfill one of my greatest dreams when I was a child, going to Disneyland. We also went to Ocean Park and lots of great places HK could ever offer. We'll probably go back there someday.
  5. I am grateful and thankful to God for giving me a chance to find new friends through blog and through PEBA.
  6. I am thankful to God that even during our crisis, He provided solutions to our problems.
  7. I am thankful to God for strengthening our marriage and continually give each of us better understanding. Giving us patience and making us better parents toward our son.

Thank God for everything.

Hello, thank you for joining in my contest :)

Well said :) You have so many things to thank God for :) And for me the best is recognizing God's power in strengthening your marriage life and making you and your wife a better parents to your sons.

God bless you and your family :)

Great post! It's good to see people spreading the word about how good God is in their lives. God bless you there, sir!
