Be Thankful for The Story Matters Weekly Challenge/ So Tell Me Ur Story Challenge

Close- ups

The challenge from The Story Matters is themed on being THANKFUL. This is indeed a timely reminder that we should all be thankful as we approach the end of the year. Another year flies by and we are hopefully another year wiser, but with the financial crisis and bad news everyday, all I hear are complainings and grumblings. The hubster warned that his bonus will definitely be cut and is sad that his hard work in the initial part of the year during rolling good times is probably down the drain. I receive smses from my banker friend worrying about her customers and relationship managers... ...and even the young gal at home complains that she can't get to see her favourite uncle and auntie all the time.

Ephesians 5:20- Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

I am indeed thankful for everything God has blessed our family with. The kids, Papa's job (his bonus may be cut but he's not jobless) which allowed me to stay home (and watch the monsters grow), the quarrels which strengthen us, the laughter and the joy!

Most importantly, I am thankful that I have the 3 of them in my life!
And that's my journalling. Btw, I love that cutsie pink clock button that I found in a market here... ...

I really like this theme cos' its so meaningful, so i'm submitting it for So Tell Me Your Story challenge as well! I like this blog. Go check out this blog, it has simple and meaningful themes for challenges. Personally, I like the 'All About Me' challenges cos so often, we get caught up in scrappin about others but never about ourselves!
