Thankful

Things I’m thankful for in no order:
Family and friends who’ve loved me and stuck with me through everything. I’m thankful they can spend Thanksgiving with family. The blessed life I’ve been given. A roof over my head, and warmth away from the snow. A great company to work for and great people to work with. Having all 5 senses present to be able to fully experience the world around me, and a whole body to move in. I will not always have this, and I don’t want to take it for granted. I am thankful for a clear mind to write.

I am thankful for the ease of which I have to get a meal to eat. I am thankful that I have a job where I can work on paying off college debt. I am thankful for the chance to learn outside of school something completely new. I am thankful for the opportunity to grow in every season should I choose to.

I’m thankful that even though I am away, I can still communicate with those I love on a day like today. I am thankful for three adorable neices, loving brothers, their awesome wives, wonderful parents, and caring family everywhere I’ve been.

I am  thankful for redemption and a chance at new life. I am thankful for a Savior who loves me. I am thankful for His sacrifice so that I can have life, and live it to the full no matter the circumstance because I have a greater hope. I am thankful for grace. I am thankful for love, and all who have shown it to me. I’m thankful for those who haven’t, so that I might have chance to show love to them.

I’m thankful for snow, cold, and all its beauty. I’m thankful that it reminds me there are other seasons, each with their own beauty. I’m thankful for good shows, movies, books, and people who share good stories.

I’m thankful for all my friends and family God has protected, worked through, and the chance to see Him change their lives. I’m thankful He has changed mine. I’m thankful for all the freedoms I enjoy in the US and in Canada and for the men and women have sacrificed everything for it.

I am thankful to those brave enough to read to the end of my long-windedness, I know I’ll think of more later.

I am thankful for the chance to reflect on what I am thankful for 🙂
