My job, in this shaky economy. My house, when others are losing theirs. My boyfriend, who loves me through thick and thin. My family, who lives close by and supports me in all I do. My freedom, to write and think as I please. My cats, who saved me more than I saved them. My washer and dryer (because I’ve lived without these before, and it sucked!). My friends, who always know how to lift my spirits. My boyfriend’s mother, who appreciates me for who I am. Chocolate, because sometimes you just need some. Coffee, to wake me up each morning. My health, because you never know how long you’ll have it. ZUMBA!–because it’s self-explanatory. My car, to take me where I need to go. Food, because not everyone can afford it. My bed, to keep me warm at night. A garage, because carrying groceries up three flights of stairs is exhausting! My life, because not everyone has theirs.
Today is Thanksgiving in America, and I decided to take a break from my usual posts.
I have many things to be thankful for. No, life isn’t perfect. But when I pause to think of all the blessings, I immediately feel much better–and the challenges suddenly seem easier to overcome.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
AND TELL ME: Regardless of the obstacles you’re facing, what are you thankful for this year? No matter how large or small?
