Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

So being that yesterday was Thanksgiving, I figured it'd only be fitting to do a post on the things that I am thankful for.  First off let me start by saying this was my first Thanksgiving without my father.  It was bitter sweet, but I am thankful that I still had my mother and brother to share it with.  I am thankful for my sanity, even though some days I feel like I may go crazy.  I am thankful for my health, even though I could be stronger.  I am thankful for my friends, no matter what we may go through.  I am thankful for my clarity, even though some decisions may still be tough.  I am thankful for my thought process, always knowing everything will be ok in the end.  I am thankful for the ocean, you bring me the ultimate peace.  I am thankful for my niece, I swear her smile could cure cancer.  I am thankful for writing, sometimes it is the only way that I know how to make sense.  I am thankful for my mothers belief in me, there would be a lot more stars in the world if everyone had her on their side.  I am thankful for music, the only thing that gets me every time.  I am thankful for my brothers existence, more necessary than he will ever know.  I am thankful for anyone who has found the ability to love me, I know sometimes it can feel like battling an army.  I am thankful for my ability to forgive, staying angry is far to much of a challenge for me.  I am thankful for laughter, it really is the best medicine.  I am thankful for my heart, and its ability to love and love again.  I am thankful for the readers of eat.pray.happy., I find myself in complete awh of your love and still cannot believe that you exist.  I am thankful for all things GOOD, just a glimmer of you makes knowing the bad won't last forever, just that much easier. THANK YOU!
