25 Things I’m Thankful For

I make it a practice to give thanks everyday.  I wake up and say out loud, “Thank you for this day”.  When I go to bed, I give thanks for my mountain of cozy covers and the bed I lie in.  I believe in living everyday with an attitude of gratitude.  Being grateful for your breath, your family, your limbs, the food in your fridge, the running water in your sink, the most basic items we take for granted, really puts things in perspective on a daily basis to remind me of what’s really important.  I am thankful for so, so many things but here are few that I thought I’d share with you.

I am thankful for:

– My passport

– To have seen the sunrise over the Sahara Desert & The Ganges River

– My supportive husband who has allowed me to follow my dreams

– Being able to indulge my Rocky Road cravings on a whim

– That I have children in my life to love on and that love me back

– Traditions

– My siblings.  I can not fathom my life without them

– Christmas, every part of it

– My parents.  The talent, confidence they’ve instilled in me and the trust they have given are the foundation of who I am

– The friendship I had with my Grandmother.  I miss her

– My open heart and mind

– Clean sheets

– The smell and sound of rain

– World music

– Sushi

– Whoever created the dishwasher

– To have stepped foot on other countries

– Endless books to read

– To have friends all over the world

– Snuggles, giggles and cuddles

– Diversity, in all things. It makes life that much more interesting

– Dance

– My ability to create what I dream up

– My organization

– The endless possibility that arrives with each new day

To quote the very wise Maya Angelo, I am thankful “to have done a lot so far”.

This Thanksgiving and everyday, I count my blessings and wish many for you and your family.
