So Many Things To Be Thankful For...

A million and one things to be thankful for, even when all seems to be going bottoms-up:

For the love of family, who are always there no matter what;

For the companionship of friends, listening and cheering through it all;

For the beauty of each new day, and all the opportunities it brings with it;

For the joy of work, and the day-to-day self actualizations that come with it;

For the beauty of delightful laughter, oh the ever potent aphrodisiac;

For the joy of budding friendships, and the thrill of building new associations;

For the end of those relationships, and the bitter-sweet memories and lessons learned;

For the essense of life, even with its ups and downs;

For the challenges that come my way, and the feel of exhilaration with each challenge surmounted;

For the hope of a future and an eager expectancy of the unknowns that come with it;

For the joy of reading, and the boundless vistas it throws open;

For the sound of good music, an ever soothing balm to the soul;

For the decadent texture of luxurious dark chocolate, and its sinful guilty pleasures;

For the ability to muse at simple everyday events;

For the kindness of  strangers, who unveil another side of humanity;

For having a great education, not many have the opportunity;

For the chance to listen to uplifting messages, that in an instant turns my mindset around;

For the joys of dancing, oh, with reckless abandon;

For the delight of listening to sweet gossip, that offers a sneak preview into the lives of others;

For the beauty of seeing sweet faced giggling children, who have not a care in the world;

So many things to be thankful for, even when life seems topsy-turvy

And for all these and more, I am truly thankful to be alive!

What are YOU thankful for?
