As I sit here and listen to the sound of the wind blow through the leaves on the trees and the train’s horn in the distance, I am reminded of all the things I am thankful for.
I am thankful for the people I have met who are now my family, and those who have welcomed me into their family. I am thankful for those I have learned from and the lessons that have helped me become a better person (remember, it’s all relative). I have loved and befriended some amazing people – I am thankful for the moment I met each of them.
I am thankful for each time I had the luxury to sit down and listen to the wind in the trees or the rain hit the window panes. I am thankful I get to choose what I put in my fridge, cook in my kitchen, and eat every day. I am thankful I live in a house I chose and that I could make it a home for my dogs and me to live in. I am thankful I can open it to my friends and family to call their own as well.
I am thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow each day – and the luxury to squander that occasionally (I really need to stop doing that). I am thankful I learned to stop and appreciate mistakes I have made because they taught me something.
I feel thankful for the little moments. And that I recognize and appreciate these moments for how important they are.
I am most thankful that I am here at the edge of a new year, day, hour, and moment – and all it has to offer.
I am thankful for my life and all the possibilities ahead.
