Summer Essay Series #1: Gratefulness Journal

Things I Am Grateful For Today:

For the sun, shining warm and bright, making everything clear and positive-looking
For the residual scent of the rain that fell last night, gentle thunder announcing itself

For the ability to see. Birds, grass, water, flowers, and most importantly, people
For my little car, dependable and fun to drive, it gets me where I need to go
For music....what would life be without it??

For being able to walk. For having shoes to wear--lots of them
For the changing seasons, which I love so much

For clothing, so much that I could clothe several other people, and a warm coat for winter.
For a roof over my head and a place to rest at the end of the day

For electricity, clean running water, heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer.
For not only having enough to eat, but having so many choices

For being safe at home, in my city, in my country.
For the people I care about, and because they are doing well.

For interests that fulfill me and challenge me
For having access to good medical care when I need it
For having a say in who governs my country, and when I disagree, the freedom to express that
For various kinds of help that's only a phone call away

And, I am really grateful for work that has purpose: I get to see people succeed.

What are you grateful for today?
