Giving Thanks

I am thankful for a family who loves me no matter what,
and for friends who help me along the way.

I am thankful for the beauty of the earth
of the sky
and of the woodlands.

For the subway.
For elevators.
For modern medicine, for caring doctors.

For smooth rocks from the beach, and I’m thankful for snow flurries and little seeds that hide away until the first hint of spring’s warmth.
For children who laugh at the bus stop.

For music and shared words.

I’m grateful for the farmers always growing food for us to eat.
I am grateful for the strength of my mind, body, and emotions.
I am thankful for hope and the future, for the sad times as well as the sweet ones

I am thankful to learn.
I am thankful to grow.
I am thankful each moment as I discover this miracle of life.

I am thankful for the leaping snow puppy and the little girl with the pink phone, because they just made my day!

Of course, you did too. Don't feel bad. you know what else I'm grateful for? In all seriousness? Your blag....
