Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
( Oprah Winfrey)
I’m thankful that there is love in my life. I have someone I’ve grown old with and hopefully we’ll continue on this path for awhile longer – a lifetime partner is a blessing. Even on days when he’s grouchy and obnoxious, he’s still kind of worth it.
I’m thankful that I can see, and read, and write, and think. Even if I don’t do all of those things particularly well. These are abilities I hope I am never foolish enough to take for granted.
I am thankful that I have a house and a job and a car and money to pay my bills. All my basic needs are met. I am one of the luckiest people on this planet.
I am thankful for family. My siblings, my kids, my grandchildren, my aunts and uncles and cousins. I am thankful for the time I had with my parents who loved me and taught me the value of giving and loving back.
I am thankful that I am aging with health and beauty and grace. HAHAHA! And for my sense of humor and incredible ability to delude myself. That’s the gift that just keeps on giving.
