just a chick from Trinidad writing about her life on a small island but with big dreams all the same.

Wednesday, February 22, 2006


I blogged about happiness yesterday and death only to find out someone I knew passed away suddenly she was in her late 30's and she just got an infection and died she has a two year old daughter and its just so sad how you could be here young and healthy one minute and gone the next it just reinforced my reslove to enjoy my life no matter how short it may be.

I did a grateful list too........

1. I am grateful for my son who at 6 is so smart he keeps me on my toes I told him he has to go to bed earlier because of the trouble to wake him in the mornngs and he changed the time on the clock and fooled his old mother I can't remember being so smart at his age. I love him so.

2. I am grateful to my husband who even though we are going thru the seven year itch right now I love him will always love him he's been my rock never stops me from doing anything I want to gives me all the support and love that I need and has become the big brother and son to my sisters and mom.

3. I am grateful to my mom who calls me everyday to see how i'm doing and has such a good relationship with my son and husband who has the ability to show grace under pressure and her ability to forgive and forget I hope to mirror one day. She always ask me first did you pray about it? whenever I call to tell her my troubles she has such strong faith.

4. I am grateful for my girlfriend whose mission in life is to build my selfesteem who tells me how beautiful I am and remind me what i've achieved and never takes no for an answer when I want to use my fat as an excuse to stay at home and not go out and have fun we all should have friends like that .

5. I am grateful for my country with all the crime and terrible drivers and bad manners here I still love it here I love the way we could find the humour in serious issues and make light of it the way we make friends easily and could have a good time especially for Carnival, I love Carnival.

What are you guys grateful for?

We get so caught up in the negatives that life throws our way that we rarely have time to say thanks for the good things that are given to us daily. I guess I could mirror your list to some, friends, job, education (as painful as it is) shelter, food........long list.

Sorry to hear about your friend. Life is so fragile and unpredictable. We have so much to be thankful for, we should think on the blessings rather than lament over out misfortunes...I need to remember that!

I'm thankful for life, an education, my family, significant other and friends, and God and the list continues...

I'm grateful for my family, my boyfriend, my inner strength, my job, for being able to spend money on stuff I don't really need and for knowing there are people I can call 24/7 and who will show up at my door in no time if I ask them to.

I found a very cool list site thing the other day. Just posted about it. Have a look, you may like it too.
