Gratitude List

I am thankful for my family, thankful that we are close with each other, and that I get to start this year with them in Indonesia.
The Wirianta clan. :)

I am thankful that on my last night in Jakarta, I decided to follow my heart to turn around and gave my foster dad one last hug and told him thank you for everything he did for me, because that was the last time I'll ever see him. He passed away in March.

I am  thankful for my thoughtful hubby who loves me for who I am and totally supportive of me. And that he's a good cook, because I am not. :)

I am thankful that my li'l brother finally met that special girl and she fits in our family so well. Now, I have 2 amazing SIL that I love.

I am thankful that I got laid off earlier this year as it open new window of opportunity for me. Now I have a part time job that I love (with great working hours), working for someone who appreciate my skills, and gives me the flexibility that I needed so I can pursue my card making passion.

I am thankful for my doggies, cause they make me smile every.single.day. My dogs are my kids and I love them with all my heart.

I am  thankful for my upbringing in Indonesia. It allows me to appreciate both the Eastern & Western world.

I am thankful for my love of reading, because it has taken me to many wonderful, amazing places. Imagination is a wonderful thing.

I am thankful to know that there are still many decent & kind people in this world, who think of others.

I am thankful for Pinterest. Get so many great ideas there. :)

I am thankful to be alive and to experience what life has to offer. I have a loving family to share my life with (biggest blessing of all), a roof over my head, food on the table, bed to sleep in, and many more. Life is great, even with it's up and down.

I am thankful for the people who touched my heart and made a difference in my life.

With that note, here's a card I made for Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge that simply said, I'm Grateful For You. I love the colors and the woods on this pic.




Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May your Thanksgiving be filled with wonderful family time.

What a special blog post. It is such a nice thing to stand still for a second and think about all the things you are grateful for. In the Netherlands we don't have Thanksgiving but reading your post really made me think about the things I am grateful for. Thank you for that! I hope you have a wonderful celebration. Hugs, Hanneke
