On thankfulness.....

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

On this day of being grateful, I am all too aware how blessed I am and how thankful I have cause to be...

I am thankful for a million tiny kindnesses which give my life a real sense of purpose and worth...

I am thankful for family and friends, both near and far...

I am thankful for learning, and teaching, and growing...

I am thankful for smiles and hugs and high fives, for injokes and letters and packages...

I am thankful for books and blogs and music and films...

I am thankful for food to eat and things to drink, a warm bed to sleep in at night...

I am thankful for the children I get to teach and guide each day...

I am thankful for my health, and my dreams, and my freedom (how blessed to live in a time and place where I get to choose who I want to be, and what I want to be!)...

I am thankful for tomorrow, and the next day, and the next...

I am thankful for songs to sing and kisses to come and night skies full of stars and plans of awesomeness...

I am thankful for past sorrows now forgotten, and future pleasures hoped for...

I am thankful for my ability to count my blessings...

What are you thankful for, friends?
