Now that all the spooky stuff is over, it’s time to think about all the good things in life. Perhaps you can’t think of anything to be thankful for, but take a moment and look around you. The fact that you are alive and reading this is reason enough to be thankful. No matter what or who you believe in, giving thanks is something everyone should practice. Saying thanks for even the small daily things like your cup of coffee, makes you appreciate things a little more.
I would like to share with you some of the things (big and small) I am thankful for.
I am thankful that I am alive today. Healthy and ready to take on the challenges and opportunities of this day.
I am thankful for the rain, the cold wind and the comfy clothes and coffee that keep me warm.
I am thankful for my eye glasses! Without them I couldn’t see the beauty that surrounds me and would get lost walking around.
I am thankful for my small, chubby, and awesome bunny Manchester. Despite him chewing on my door, my shoes, my chargers, my books, some toilet tube that flooded my apartment, and many more things he is still my most loyal companion. Without him my days would be dull.
I am thankful for my hardworking parents, whom despite my flaws and imperfections still love me and protect me like a gem.
I am also thankful for my siblings, even though they are younger than me, I see them as role models.
I am thankful for the delicious food I get to eat every day, it nourishes and gives me the energy to keep my day going.
I am thankful for the water that cleans and refreshes my body.
I am thankful for the people that inspire me each day; my teachers, my boss, and my coworkers.
I am thankful for the long days and sleepless nights. Without them I wouldn’t have valued the power of hard work and accomplishments.
Finally, I am thankful for those who still believe in good things and have hope that this world is filled with more smiles than tears, more miracles than tragedies, more forgiveness and less grieve, more love and less hate.
