Being that today is my birthday, I’m doing some self reflection and focusing on all I’m grateful for in my life, but nothing brings this home more than a recent comment on an international blog about my website, which is a nationwide directory of businesses offering birthday freebies and discounts. There are over 2,000 listings and it continues to grow for which I’m grateful because in these difficult economic times, I’d like to think I’m helping millions save money while celebrating their birthdays.
A Russia blog sharing business ideas, recently added a post about Free Birthday Treats and the single comment left stated, according to my pal Google Translation:
This is simply tremendous! How cool that people aspire, dream, invent the benefit! We have such little in Siberia, BUT THEY HAVE!
Wow! We do live in a land of abundance and I frequently overlook my many blessings. After reading a recent guest post on Zen Habits “Three Truths to Help You Create a Life of Gratitude”, it made me realize I wasn’t expressing my gratitude for all the wonderful blessings in my life.
With that being said, thank you to all my subscribers and supporters of my website, blog and me. To my family and friends thank you for loving me for who I am, but most importantly, thank you Lord for my blessings.
