Thanksgiving Day

November 22, 2007

What I’m thankful for…


The obvious
:
-Loving family
-Empathetic friends
-Caring companions
-Good health
-Comfortable housing
-Substantial sustenance


The not-so-obvious
:
-The time and ability to prepare my own food
-The opportunity to challenge and enrich my mind
-Leaf-covered paths through the woods
-Glances out of the window on a sunny day
-Ears to hear rain pattering on the roof
-Smiling strangers
-Clouds
-Stars
-Mountains
-Cornfields
-Travel
-Languages
-The smell of freshly baked goods
-Locally produced milk
-Sweet, crunchy apples
-Dark chocolate
-Horses
-Hugs
-Kisses
-Spirituality
-Passion


The counter-intuitive
:
-Mistakes
-Failures
-Uncertainty
-Reprimand

These are the ingredients of happiness, reflection, and direction in my life, and I wouldn’t want to be without any of them.
