But I'm not going to talk about that.
So instead I'm going to say what I'm really thankful for... right this minute.
The bowl of jelly beans on my desk that lets me have them at 7:00 in the morning.I could, at any time, change those thankful things without any warning... or I could add some. You never know.
Saki hasn't been wanting to go outside in the middle of the night.
The snow is almost all melted off the ground.
I haven't had to go into a sanitarium... yet.
Warm wool socks on my feet.
Quiet mom time. Nobody else in this house wants to be awake at 7am.. and that's why I am.
The faint sound of birds chirping. (hey... the window is closed! It's only 29 degrees outside!)
Being thankful is so much more than health, happiness and all that. Seriously. Look around at the little things - that's what really matters in life. Sure, you might not remember the jelly beans or wool socks 50 years down the road, but you remember it today and the big stuff? It will be there in your memories... that's why it's big stuff. It's the little stuff you have to enjoy - and be thankful for - when it's right there in front of you.
