What I’m thankful for

Given the holiday of Thanksgiving tomorrow, I thought I would come up with a list of things for which I am thankful. It will be random and heartfelt and hopefully worthwhile gratitude. Without further travail…

  1. God — and everything He does and has done for me
  2. My dear friends, whom I need not name
  3. Life — no matter what struggle(s) I face and burdens I bear
  4. My new puppy, Yuki
  5. Starry skies
  6. Fireflies
  7. Lilacs
  8. Cicadas
  9. An untamed heart
  10. An unrelenting mind
  11. Love — even though I haven’t heard it as more than a whisper
  12. Words — of all languages, though especially English
  13. Flowers — even “weeds”
  14. A roof over my head
  15. Food in my belly
  16. Water on my lips
  17. Music — yes, even the stuff I can’t stand
  18. Art — especially Van Gogh and Dore
  19. Peace — though the snippets of it be all too rare
  20. Tears — that I have had things worth crying over
  21. Sorrow — that I have sufficient joy as to miss it when it flees
  22. Sickness — for I have known what it is to be well
  23. Everything else I forgot — because there is an infinite amount of things to be thankful for
