123 Mango Tree - Gratitude

Posted by Nadine Johnson on


This year was a doozy, but there are many things I'm grateful for. I encourage you to write a list of at least 25 things that you are grateful for, and ask your children to do the same (don't be surprised if your child lists 20 different toys :) Writing a list will turn a bad year or day into a blessing. Here is my list: 

  • Health and well-being
  • Spiritual growth
  • New and clear direction for my like
  • A loving family
  • My beautiful son
  • Motherly wisdom and fortitude
  • Mental strength
  • All my needs being fulfilled
  • A year of rebuilding and rediscovering myself
  • Surviving hurricane Mathew
  • The cardinals building a nest in my tree
  • Watching the baby cardinals learn to fly
  • New tires for my car
  • A new computer for work
  • Completing two new books
  • Growing my company
  • The brownie sundae from Fridays at the Miami airport
  • Fried breadfruit, bammy, and jerk/fried/baked chicken
  • Nieces and Nephews excelling in life
  • Sleeping in on the weekends
  • A very long summer (I hate cold weather)
  • Jeans and more jeans
  • Anra Day’s song “Cheers to the Fall” and “Gold”
  • Oprah’s Super Soul series online
  • belly-busting laughter
