Thankful

Today I thought I would write about things that I’m thankful for. Today, I’m thankful for great friends and belly laughs. Wonderful food and warm desserts. I’m thankful for the loud and the quiet moments in my life. The loud makes me appreciate the quiet and the quiet prepares me for the loud. I’m thankful for children and animals. Sticky hugs and kisses and furry kisses and rubs.

I’m thankful for people who still believe in honesty, people who believe in the honor system. I’m thankful for sunny days with finger-painted skies before dark descends. I’m thankful for green fields of corn topped with fluttering black of birds. I’m thankful for dead trees filled with buzzards drying their wings in a beautiful balance. I’m thankful for shiny ripples on the water. I’m thankful for fresh food from my garden and the abundance of it so that I may share.

I’m thankful for family dancing in our living room and running in the rain. I’m thankful for singing in the car with the kids and teaching them the oldies. I’m thankful for campfires and marshmallows and bellyaches from too many. I’m thankful for fresh cut grass to roll in and crayola leaves to toss in the air.

I’m thankful for love, hope, happiness, and words. I’m thankful that I can share my thanks with you.
