I know everyone seems to be posting something about this Thanksgiving and what they all know that they’re thankful for…. A part of me doesn’t want to say anything because of that.
I think putting those things down really make it concrete and real.
It makes you appreciate those things on a whole different level.
I am thankful for all of my family. And I am thankful that when even things are super hard, I somehow make it out a little stronger than I used to be.
I am thankful for wonderful people in my life that push me to fulfill my dreams and help me strive to be a great person.
I am thankful for all the simple things:
a warm bed. food. water. shelter. heaters. a kiss on the cheek. a hug goodbye. all of the small quiet tears that are shed out of happiness and fulfillment. a family that I have the privilege of knowing and belonging to. music; a way to pour my heart out to other people. cuddling after a long, hard, cold day. someone to long for me. a sweet gift from a dear friend. long talks that go late into the night. people that love me. just…..
LOVE. and a whole ton of it.
I am so glad that things like this exist. And that people are just so great.
