What I am Thankful For
If I were to make a list of all the things that I like most about my life, here’s what it would say:
I love that I have legs to carry me, and feet to walk across Mother Earth’s green grass with. Those legs and feet carry me as I walk besides you. I feel thankful that my creator has given me freedom of movement in this artfully created body, that moves around without hindrance and allows me to go places on my own and with you.
I love that I have eyes to see with, so that I can appreciate the beauty around me and the Heaven on Earth that I see every day when I look at what our Creator has provided us with – the beauty of Earth in her flowers and trees, and the oceans and rivers, in the lakes and dams, in the grass and on the sand; the incredible wonder at Earth’s children who co-habitate this planet besides us, and the amazing feats of science that have helped to advance our lives and heal and prevent disease. I love that my eyes get to gaze upon the wonder that I see in you too. I thank God each time I see you, for your presence here on Earth.
I love that I have an intellect that can reason, one which allows me to share conversations with my friends and with you. I love the witty spark that you have when we chat, and how you make me laugh. I love that I can laugh and be merry, and that I can do it with you alongside of me. I love that you bring your own laughter to our relationship.
I love that I have good health, and food on my table, and someone to share my mealtimes with. I thank you for being with me at dinnertime, to share in the delicious meals that I’ve been able to prepare and because of the abundance of food that is available to us. We are so blessed to be able to share these things together.
I love that I have a warm bed to sleep in at night, and a roof over my head. I love that I can invite you into my home and offer you a place to sit on the lounge that is there, in front of the television that we watch DVDs on. I love our intimate times together.
I feel so blessed to have so much, and so blessed to be able to share those things with you.
