What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Guess where I am right now? I am posting this entry right here at the Woraburi Phuket Resort & Spa, located on the sunny pristine Karon Beach ... Sawadee Ka!!

"Woraburi" means an idyllic place
populated by fairies who revel in perpetual happiness.

Lo kong and I arrived late yesterday night. There was a 20 minutes flight delay and immigration clearance was super slow ... first time ever encountered. It took us almost half-an-hour to clear. Lucky us, we already had a rented Honda Jazz waiting at the airport. This is our second trip to Phuket together after more than 4 years. This short trip is a marathon cum vacation. Just like the previous year, lo kong will be running another full marathon at the 7th Laguna Phuket International Marathon held at the Laguna Phuket Resort tomorrow morning. Don't think we will be catching much shut-eye as the race starts at 4.30 am and we have to make a 35-minutes drive to the starting line.  Although he has not really healed from his injuries, I do pray he will somehow make it to the finish line within the qualifying time.

Another week's due to reflect my gratitudes and I'm simply very grateful to be back on this popular island paradise. I am equally grateful to arrive safe and sound amidst the mad rush from home to the airport since lo kong worked a full day today. Randomly, my list of gratitude are pretty simple ...

1. I am grateful to be able to enjoy my current lifestyle ... one that I had always dream of.
2. I am grateful for the wonderful travel experiences.
3. I am grateful that my body, mind and spirit are balancing pretty well.
4. I am grateful for God's presence in my life all the time.
5. I am grateful for all the epiphanies that has changed my perspective on life.

My Little Prayer of Thanks 

Lord I come before You, desiring to provide thanks. 
Father, I have so much to be thankful for, things unseen and seen,
 that You have done in my life. 

 I am thankful Lord for everything that You allow to cross my path. 
Thankful for the decisions that You allow me to make 
 and the lessons that come from these decisions. 

Lord, words do not express my thankfulness. 
For Your mighty power is at work in me, 
transforming me, renewing my mind. 
To You Lord belong thanks eternal. 

In Jesus’ name, Amen!
