I am thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me.
I am thankful for friends, who are cooler than me, and smarter than me and funnier than me.
I am thankful for my talents and abilities. The ones that come easily to me and the ones I continue to perfect.
I am thankful for my job and for my education. Two things that contribute to making me a better me.
I am thankful for cookies.
I am thankful for technology including but not limited to: my cell phone, the internet, cameras, electricity, netfix.
I am thankful for my home and everything that inside of it, including but not limited to: my bed (ha) I'm glad I have a warm place to sleep at night.
I am thankful for the opportunities and experiences I have had/will have. Even the difficult ones, or as I like to call them "learning experiences".
I am thankful for really good food.
I am thankful for beautiful things. For the arts. For music and interesting buildings, and clothing. For nature and theater and all things enriching.
For the rest of this holiday weekend I hope to keep this spirit with me. What are you thankful for?
