What Am I Grateful For This Week ...

Ahhhhhh ... very quickly another weekend arrives for me to count my blessings. The moment this entry is published, I am already on my way from the Penang International Airport to my hotel by the beach on the Pearl of the Orient. Yup! Will be staying here for 2 nights as the Penang Bridge International Marathon 2011 will be flagged off early ... very early ... in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Lo kong and friends will be running in the full marathon.  Me as usual ... snap snap snap!

We cannot show our gratitude without sharing it with someone ... anyone ... because when we show our gratitude, it is our way of sharing our joy and our appreciation of the treasures we have been blessed with everyone. Just as William Arthur Ward said, "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."

Just to sum up the week quickly, here is my random list of gratitude:

1. I am grateful for the safe journey to this beautiful island, Penang.
2. I am grateful to have won a prize (don't know what yet??? so looking forward to it!) from one of my blogger friends ... the 'Globetrotter'.
2. I am grateful for the heavy assignments received for the past few days despite having lost several files due to my own silly mistake.
3. I am grateful and motivated by the positive feedback received for my assignments.
4. I am grateful for the increased traffic to my blog and all the new friends I've recently made over Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits and blessings which you have given me,
for all the pains and anger which you have borne for me.

Merciful Father and Redeemer,
may I know you more clearly,
love you more dearly,
and follow you more closely,
day by day.
