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?

    I’m thankful for my husband, my friends and family, my job, my full refrigerator, and central heating. Basically, all my loved ones and all the goodies that come with living in a wealthy nation.

    Okay I first read ‘books’ as ‘boobs’. I’m laughing really hard about that.I’m thankful for all the gifts this life has given, especially those I don’t deserve.
