wiki.jpg“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Ward
giving.jpgThis is your opportunity to give your wrapped present by expressing your gratitude; you never know who you may inspire with your story and your blessings. You may want to share how you put your words of gratitude into action to someone and how the act impacted you. Also, this is not just a one time entry. Feel free to visit and share you gratitude any time. It is all about being grateful everyday and sharing with others you wrapped gift. Whatever you choose, share your attitude of gratitude today! ===
A little housekeeping suggestions to keep the page neat and in order:
Enter your post at the top of the section you want to use, so your post will be the first entry after it is entered. For the name section enter it with first name only then date(Sue - May 1, 2015 - I am etc.) Entering under the section not using your name, enter it under the current month. Again yours will be the first entry. If there is no heading for your month, add it then your post .

Remember, this page belongs to all Lifebushido members, so use it and do not stress if the order is different. The gratitudebushido will magically fix it. Enjoy the page and have fun with it. All will be touched by your reflections of gratitude - yet, none more than you!

Personal Statements of Attitude of Gratitude:

  • Enamul - July 16, 2017 - I am grateful to Almighty Allah (SWT) for this life, for the family and giving me a chance to make my parents proud. I want to thank Allah (SWT) from the bottom of my heart for being with me all the way, for never leaving me and for loving me.
  • Sherrylyn - July 14, 2017 - I am thankful for life itself - whether good or bad, up or down; everyday is simply a blessing. As they would say,”when one door closes, a window would open.“ You just simply have to find them. And those are opportunities that come your way. I am also grateful for my family and friends who had cared for me and accompanied me as I go through life's journey. Without them, I guess, my life alone would be meaningless.

For the past three years, I have felt a strong belonging with the Lifebushido family, simply because of the waves of optimism, love and support that flow among Ishidos. Lifebushido has encouraged me to face life with my head held high and am forever grateful - my first boy just completed his primary leaving exams, I started my postgraduate studies and I love every bit of this. I am grateful to God who is seeing me through all this.
  • Mary S. - 11/21/16 - I am so grateful for the chance to give my grandchildren, who now are my children a family and a safe environment to love and grow and be the best kids that they can be.

I am also grateful for the opportunity that Lifebushido has given me to be able to work at home with flexible hours so that I am able to do things with my girls that otherwise I would not be able to. I am using my unique talents to work and to bake like I have dreamed about and to be a Mentor in a Ministry that has an awesome Women's recovery center for alcohol and drug addiction.

October 2014

August, 2014

Thanks Steve.
