Giving Thanks

gratitude92.jpgWhat do you love about life?  What really makes your day? 

No matter how big or small, how recent an experience or old a memory, whether it’s person, place or thing – share with us what’s wonderful about your life.
I’ll start by sharing my “fab life flick” I included in today’s Get What You Want ezine issue.
(Created with Animoto; music credits to Cat Stevens.)
As highlighted in the ezine, please know that YOU have much to do with my complete enjoyment of my life!  Thanks for being partners in the journey.  🙂

    I grateful for many things in my life but today I am thankful for my baby’s 15th birthday. She is a true blessing to me. I enjoy being with her. She has lots of love to share with her friends and family. She is God driven.

  • Amona says:

    I LOVE the bonds in my life. I spent 20 years in the military, all away from my immediate family (parents, siblings, etc) I am now living in a state with my 3 sons without any other relatives. I have several ‘sisters” from my military career here and we have bonds as close if not closer than my blood relatives. We are a true family in ever sense of the word and when our respective families visit from out of town we all share our families. So not only do I have sisters I have extra mom’s, dads, nieces and nephews. I am go grateful for my bonded family.
    I love the bonds created with my 3 sons, they are my Heart, Love & Life.
    The love and connection is so strong, it makes me glow inside.

    Hi Jeannette!
    My internet’s back on in my house, thanks to my lovely daughter, Chanel. Yea, and Woo Hoo!!! We went to dinner at my father’s house and got to see relatives I hadn’t seen in years, plus my son gave the cd he produced to my dad, who played it for a guy who owns a record label – turns out the guy is related to my dad’s girlfriend and he was at the dinner! How ’bout that?! Let’s see…what else…Oh! My doctor appointment is in 3 days. I don’t think I’ll get to find out if I’m carrying a girl or a boy on that visit, but I’m sure I find out some stuff I can use, plus my doctor doesn’t mind answering all my “weird” questions. She’s pretty good!
    May your weekend be full of Good Vibrations!!!

  • Rozanne says:

    I am thankful every day that I am allowed to be on this planet, and share my life with others. I am thankful to my friends for helping along the path to fulfilling my dreams. I would not be living where I do today if not for them always supporting me and yet expecting great things from me. I wish to thank my husband for loving me and supporting me even when he doesn’t share my beliefs. I would like to thank Jeanette for her inspiring blog and coaching emails, they always make me aware of where I am and what I am doing or not doing as the case may be. Jeanette your fab life flick is gorgeous and I am keen to get going making my own.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Ariel says:

    Oh darn. I too was hoping to see a pic of Russ.. ha ha!! Verrall is pretty cute though!
    I am grateful for knowing you Jeanette and for the support and inspiration you provide.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Hey… thanks for always making my heart light and putting a smile on my face. So, I am grateful for people like you who inspire, by providing perspective and spreading hope. I am in awe of my awesome children who remind me daily of what life’s about. I am thankful for my large group of family and friends, who lift me through love and laughter. I appreciate the dawn of a new day and the possibility it brings and all the gifts I have been given that allow me to live so fully. Peace, joy and love to you~ Suzanne

  • Animoto is a wonder! Check out the expressions on the animals faces! You’ve inspired Mark to send in some ant photos, lol.
    What a terrific question and reflection, thank you.
    I love my life – every last uncertain and imperfect bit of it. I love that I have someone who brings me coffee every morning, and it’s darned good coffee! I love that I’m learning to fight in year one of marriage – a good fight is hard to do, you know?
    I came home today to find a bunch of checks in my mailbox. People are happily paying me to coach them. WOW!
    I love that I had a Grandfather whose words and way of life mean more to me each year.
    Those things are wonderful.
    Miracles and Pie,

    I’m most grateful for my 9 year old dog Honey, who is the light and love of my life.

  • Linda G. says:

    I’m grateful for finding out about the Law of Attraction in the firstplace from ‘The Secret’, then finding and immersing myself in the Abraham-Hicks material.
    I’m grateful for the Joy! I feel in just living this new life everday (my feet barely touch the ground most days) and for all the Joyful manifestations it has brought me.
    I am grateful for producing a website all by myself plus a simple video as a way to announce my biggest manifestation to the world. In 2 short weeks it has led me to AMAZING people and joyous encounters!
    I’m grateful for finding Jeannette and her ezine and blog and how much her ‘Pray Rain Journaling’ has added to my growth in the ways of the Universe.
    Thank You!

  • Jim S. says:

    I am grateful for every day that dawns == sun, rain, cold, hot — and grateful as well that I’ve awakened on the sky side of the grass.
    The older I get, the more I have to be grateful for!
    And so it is.

  • judy says:

    Gratitude comes easy these days!
    What pops up to the top o’ the list though are the people in my life. Those inspired, lovable, smart, warm, funny, and creative, people who make the world a better place just by waking up in the morning!
    Yep, like is still attracting like, and it keeps getting better! hee hee
    much love, peace and fab times to all!

  • Peregrine John says:

    What a wonderful slide show! And all those dogs – You know, if we want to learn about love, acceptance, loyalty and joy, all we have to do is hang around any halfway-decent dog. They understand those like fish understand water, like cats understand sleep.
    My list of blessings is too long to attempt. For that alone, I am grateful, delighted, and kept humble. Thank you for being part of that.

  • Cody says:

    I am truly grateful for life and the abundance I recieved everyday … Thanks Jennette for keeping me inspired.

  • Barb says:

    I’m very grateful for knowing you. Thanks for
    all the sharing you do and the wonderful way
    you express yourself!

  • Russ isn’t in the video, Anonymous. I don’t have that many photos of him (I usually pull the camera out for animals, and Russ just isn’t in that scene usually, at least not like my ex-boyfriend Verrall was/is).

    I would, though, like to do a second video with more pictures of family and friends and clients, which I found a 19:44 minute audio track that will properly accommodate such a compilation!

    I’ll post it here when it’s ready …

    and I’m looking forward to seeing OTHERS video links soon, too!

    In the meantime, I’m LOVING these appreciation lists! You guys rock!!

  • Anonymous says:

    Is there a pic of Russ in the video so we can all know which one he is? I’d love to put a face to that sweetie of yours!

  • Steve says:

    Right this moment I’m super grateful for the internet – which makes these “conections” with my fellow travelers so easy and immediate! Wow! I tell you. Grinning and laughing to your Fab Life Flick, just so wonderful. I can relate so well to the things that bring you joy – thanks so much for sharing!

  • Gillian says:

    I am for ever grateful for an article I stumbled upon almost 1 1/2 years ago in a Feng Shui magazine about MANTRAS – The power of the sacred sound. After reading that article, I started to recite the mantra “OM PADMO USHINISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT” every morning for 1 hour and that was the beginning of the end of my suffering. Those sacred sounds are truly powerful beyond despriction. Words can not explain the enormous transformation I went through by reciting this mantra. Reciting this mantra connected me to my higher SELF, which began guiding me like an invisible force. It guided me to learn about LOA and the power of thought, it guided me to read the books I needed to read, it guided me to the people I needed to help me on my journey. It sure guided me to Jeannette, her PrayRain Journal and this wonderful blog and its community. It continues to guide me in my journey. What is now clear to me is, that reciting this mantra raised my level of consciousness and continues to raise my level of consciousness. Once my level of consciousness was raised, I attracted what I needed (People, books, information, knowledge) to get out of my misery. It truly is the power of the sacred sound/vibration. The sound of the mantra has bestowed me with consciousness, the light that dispells the darkness. The funny thing is that ever since I began reciting that mantra, I frequently dream about my own clothes. (Me folding clothes or packing clothes into a suitcase..) This reoccuring dream at night puzzled me for while, until I was told that clothes in our dream signifies our “SELF”, not our body or physical “SELF”, but our consciousness. So each time I dreamed about clothes, I was raising my state of consciousness to the next level. I sometimes wonder what would have become of me had I not stumbled upon that mantra? I sure would not have known Jeannette, I would not participate in this great blog, I would not learn to know everyone in this blog community. I am so greateful I was guided to Jeannette and this blog, I am so happy, because I feel I have cultivated a new network of friends online. I hope I will be able to meet everyone in person one day. Thank you so much Jeannette and everyone in this blog, you have made my life so much richer. Thank You!!!
    Much Love, Gillian

  • Rev. Warren says:

    ***The Blessing ***
    When you relax in “The Blessing” it produces the substance of things hoped for, *The Evidence* of those things not seen…Then “Out of The Blue” experience happenings takes place… Your “Faith” Opens up “The Blessing” in it’s fulness… You don’t have to “Earn” being “Blessed” it’s your “Inheritance” through “God the Father” through “Jesus The Christ” through “The Power of The Holy Spirit”… “The Blessing” goes all the way back to “Abraham” who is The Father of us “All” and “Our Faith”… In which we can call those things that be not as though they were into *Existance*…Which means whatever your Hearts desire, your Treasure is there also… Where do you want to relocate? What is your Hearts desire? That is where you activate your “Faith” and The Blessing your Blessed with will activate your “Relocation”… Don’t be moved by what you see in “The Natural” keep seeing in Faith believing you shall receive and you will receive the desire of your “Heart”… Focus your “Faith” and be specific about it and let “The Lord” work on your behalf…Send out your Ministering “Angels” who are sent to Minister on your behalf as an “Heir of Salvation” and tell them to get to work and Open up the doors of *Relocation* so you can see it in “The Natural”… You are a King and Priest in “The Kingdom of God” use your Delegated Authority and Delegated Power as an “Ambassador of “Christ” to change the structure of things all around you until it becomes *The Garden of Eden* of your desires…”The Blessing” has been bestowed on you and your family to Recreate “The Garden of Eden” Let your Eyes and Ears be Opened to your *Kingship* in Christ Jesus….

    A few months ago, I got a ticket from the local council, claiming that I had stopped in a “no standing” zone. The time of the supposed offence was when dropping off my child at school, so I presume that was the zone they were referring to, but the claims of the offence were really vague and I honestly was quite unclear as to what they were accusing me of doing (I don’t think I stopped illegally; I’m a pretty careful driver, but that area is a madhouse during pick up and drop off times!).
    Anyway, I didn’t want to pay the fine because I thought the charge was so poorly defined and the fine was ridiculous for something like stopping in a no standing zone. My husband looked up the codes involved and found a legal defence to the charge, but he also wrote to them and asked if they could clarify specifically where this allegedly happened and what it was, exactly. A lot of back and forth and a couple of phone calls and finally, after weeks, they sent a letter saying they’ve decided to drop the charge entirely.
    The good thing about this is not just that “I won”. I didn’t feel especially righteous about it, because I’m still not clear on what they claim I did, so I don’t know for positive sure that I didn’t do it, and I’m always willing to own up to stuff I actually do. The good thing, and the thing that really makes me smile, is that I pretty much manifested those dropped charges. Yes, I’m sure that the letter and phone calls helped considerably, but what I said was that the council was going to realise that it was just too much trouble to pursue it, in terms of time and effort on their part, because they’d see that we were not going to meekly accept whatever they said and hand over a substantial fine.
    I feel happy about this because I manifested it, and it came out almost exactly the way I said it would. So, yay for me because I manifested a result I wanted, and nobody is harmed in any way by it, either. 🙂

  • Ms. Tee says:

    I love the fact that everyday I wake up is another chance to dream and try again to create the life I want. I am most grateful that my sons are the type of people I would love to have in my corner. Bright, aware, thoughtful and inspiring, my life truly IS a miracle with them as my offspring!

  • Dr. Jenn says:

    Today, I gave thanks to the universe for painting me a beautiful, inspiring sunset- just for me! 😉
    At least it felt like it was for me.
    And boy, did I appreciate it! Fills me with joy, all those glorious colors- like spirit spilled a bunch of paint cans all over the sky!

  • judy says:

    absolutely brilliant!

    I definitely found my perma grin again!
