I am thankful

This entry has been long outstanding…




I am thankful to God because…

I have perfect eyesight despite abusing my eyes with hours in front of the tv and computer screen.

My hearing has now become so sensitive that I am having tinnitus without any organic cause.

I still have good functioning kidneys despite having abnormal urinalysis and clinically diagnosed with nephropathy. Thank God for a very favourable result in the latest urinalysis.

I still have normal blood pressure despite my not very healthy diet and clinically diagnosed with nephropathy.

I have a healthy nose and throat after multiple scans despite having chronic throat irritation and occasional bloody phlegm.

I still have a perfectly functional right arm despite developing chronic tennis elbow after over-using it during badminton.

I still have a clear and healthy esophagus despite years of bad acid reflux.

… that I am still alive despite all that. Not only alive… but alive and well. It’s a miracle that I am still alive.

When I look at some people around me, I know I am definitely blessed and well sustained.

Thank you God.

“I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done”
Psalms 118:17

P/S: Anything that you are thankful for today?

I'm thankful that the wedding I've been planning for my friend this past couple of months went off without a hitch. Perfect sunny weather today after days of rain. My friend looked absolutely beautiful. That's what I'm grateful to God for and for blessing their marriage.

And I'm happy you are healthy and well too, bro. :)

-thankful that i could wake up every morning.

-thankful for your update.

-thankful for you reading my blog :-P

anyway, I've just finished watching Final Destination 2 and realised that we should be thankful for every single thing that had happened to us whether it's something wonderful or not so wonderful. We will definitely be happier if we carry this thought day in day out.

heya, just a note that tinnitus sometimes can be a psychological problem... so if it's bothering you too much, best to check out that avenue too?

but hey, glad you're thankful. despite all the things that has been happening, you're more fortunate than a lot of other people, in Malaysia and abroad!

so God bless and may you be rejuvenated :)

Oh, man. I salute you for being able to at life in the eye and be thankful despite all the shortcomings...

As for what I'm thankful for, I guess I'm thankful for being born as myself. Life's not that great, but at least it isn't so miserable either. Thanks :)

Woke up this morning not to work but to sent my old man to the hospital, complaining of severe chest pain.. sign of myocardial infarction

Let’s see.. I’m thankful today that I still have the chance to send my old man to the hospital and despite of all the pain and suffering, he can still walk, joke and advised me.

Hmmmm... I think... I'm really thankful despite all the complaints and hard feelings we harbour that we can still call this home... for it truly has a lot of dear memories.

I'm also really thankful for the friends who comes and goes for each one of them has brought a dear meaning to the life I have and have yet to live...

I am thankful for my family despite our numerous arguements but deep down I still love them despite every harsh word I've thrown in...

I'm also thankful for dear friends, held close to my heart for being with me all the way and putting up with my many and frequent mood swings...

wah... I think I should stop b4 I turn ur comment box into a mini blog entry in itself... but these are the most important things I'm thankful for anyway... Cheers Zewttie boy... Glad to hear all's well... :)
