With the holidays approaching I find myself torn between reality and the dream. Something that which is meant to be a celebration tends to stir many emotions and not all are in the positive sector. I wanted to remove all the negativity and list all that I am grateful for.
I am grateful for the sun that awakens me each morning and the stars that blanket over us each night.
I am grateful for each experience for they are the great lessons of life.
I am grateful for having known love and shared love and received love.
I am grateful that in this time of my life I have found the true meaning of friendship.
I am grateful though my ears may ring, that I can still hear the music, the rain, a song bird and the comfort of your voice.
I am grateful for sight, so that I may appreciate the changing of the seasons.
I am grateful for touch, that my flesh may not always feel, but my heart does.
I am grateful for this vessel in which we call our body that it has had the chance to breathe the air of life.
I am grateful for the memories that comfort me on the darkest of days.
Today will not shadow tomorrow
and tomorrow will be nothing
I am grateful for you!
