What are You Thankful For?

I’m thankful for my family. I’m thankful for friends. I’m thankful for good health in a time when health isn’t a guarantee. I’m thankful for laughter and great memories.

I’m thankful for a great job I never dreamed I would have.

I’m thankful for a strong heart and a clear mind.

Thankful for a heart that breaks and a mind that overthinks. A heart that feels reminds me that I care about the world. My overthinking mind is a reminder I’m still thinking. Still seeing the world and thinking for myself instead of believing what others tell me to think. (how many times can I say think in a paragraph haha)

I’m thankful for tears. Tears remind me what joy feels like. I’m thankful for sadness because it reminds me what it means to be happy. (Is it possible to experience true joy without first knowing true pain?)

I’m thankful for Christmas. Thankful for Christmas songs, Christmas lights, and Hallmark Channel.

I’m thankful I still believe in Christmas miracles not because I’ve ever found “Hallmark love” on a Holiday(I’ll never rule it out though ;), but because there was a baby born one Christmas long ago…and that miracle was sent to save me from my sins.

I’m thankful that I live such a blessed life.

I’m thankful for anyone who takes a few moments out of their day to read my words.

I’m thankful for the times I’ve felt alone. I’m thankful for the day I realized I’m not.

I’m thankful for the mistakes I’ve made. They have taught me that I’m human.

I’m thankful I can laugh at myself and don’t take everything so seriously. Thankful I learned life is more fun when you can laugh at some of the craziness.

I’m thankful for my insecurities. It’s through these insecurities that I’m learning to be confident.

I’m thankful for my life. Thankful for all the years I’ve been blessed to live.

Thankful for all of the memories the future holds.

I’m thankful. I’m just simply thankful.

To be alive.
