I’m so thankful

I’m so very thankful

For the family I have

For the friends I’ve made and kept

For the opportunities I’ve been given

For my education

For the jobs I have

For residing where I am

For the love and care I’ve had

For the people I meet

For being able to walk on the street by myself

For independence

For freedom

For being able to speak my mind

For being able to wear what I want

For the roof over my head

For the bed I sleep in

For the food on the table

For nature

For life.

I’m so very thankful.

    How lovely! It’s wonderful to be thankful and grateful for the things that we have in our lives. I’m watching the sunrise, right now, and am overjoyed that I have the ability/opportunity to do so. 🙂

    Have a great day.

    I too am thankful for all the very reasons…

    We seldom think about things we have in life. We take them for granted no???

    @ Joel: Hmm…mebbe that can fall in ‘opportunities’? Or maybe not. Oh well, I’m thankful for it too!!!

    @ Jessica: Yes, it’s really nice to be grateful for all that we do have…I find that most people (me included) tend to complain about what we don’t have and forget to focus on the smallest things — watching the sun rise and set, living, breathing…some people don’t have the opportunity to get that.

    @ Smita: We definitely take a LOT for granted. Even small things like travelling on our own or wearing jeans (if you compare to countries where women can’t do that) We don’t realise how good we have it!!!

    Ditto to each one of them. The gratitude shines through now especially after I got back from Mumbai.
