I am Thankful
I am thankful:
For my tiny apartment, because it means I am not sleeping outside in the wet and cold.
For the holes in my shoes, because it means I have feet to walk freely.
For my sore, weary body at the end of the day, because it means I am capable of working hard.
For my loneliness, because it has allowed me to understand myself on a deep level.
For the exuberant taxes I paid this year, because it means I made money last year.
For the sadness I have when I leave, because it means I treasured the times I spent here.
For the pile of laundry that continues to grow, because it means I have clothes to wear.
For the time I spend waiting for youtube to load, because it means I have the ability to watch videos online.
For my frustration at the minute duration of iphone's battery life, because it means I have a powerful communication tool that provides endless opportunities.
For the old ladies in front of me walking slowly, because it reminds me not to take my youth for granted.
For the hot sweat that wets my shirt in the blazing sun, because it means I am not in an office, sitting behind a desk.
For the disgusting sound of the old fisherman's expelled phlegm, because it means I can hear.
For every missed opportunity, because it has lead me here. To you.
For every terrible misfortune, total disaster, and exasperating inconvenience, because it means I am alive, and able to be a light to someone else.
What are you thankful for?
