What Am I Thankful For This 2009?

This question was posted on Avalon.ph as part of a contest to win a Moleskine Colour a Month Daily Planner in 12 Notebooks 2010. For those who are not familiar with moleskines, this is a brand that identifies a family of notebooks, diaries, and folio books. It was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway. I have a small handy black notebook which I carry everywhere I go and frankly, it is one of my best finds in 2009, one that would count for someone addicted to notebooks like me, as one of those things to be thankful for. The year 2009 has been both a blessing and a stressful time for me...so many things have been happening day in and day out since January that I seem to have lost track of time and suddenly, December is here! But one thing for sure, in everything that has happened to me this year, God's hand was there...He sent me all kinds of angels to make sure that I was okay...during times when I felt my back against the wall...during times when other people needed help and he made me his instrument...during times when I no longer knew what to do to and was full of disappointment, God was ALWAYS there. So, in spite of my many failings, God never failed me. The past years, I have always taken the presence of the Divine Power in my life too much for granted...but this 2009, I give a conscious recognition to God for making all things possible for me. I am eternally grateful for His unconditional love not only for me but for all that I love as well...

Having said all that, the last thing that I will be forever thankful for in 2009 is if I win this Moleskine Daily Planner ;)
