I am grateful for music. It distracts, it fills space, it passes time. It conjures memories; sometimes happy, sometimes sad. I sometimes lament that I don't have any skills to be a song writer, but I am grateful that I have some skills to produce music by instrument or voice. I may not be a song writer, but I will always be a song lover.
I am grateful for the beautiful world around me. I'm grateful for the trees, the clouds, the rivers, the flowers, and all the creatures.This morning, I saw two fawns playing in a field and I couldn't help but smile.
I am grateful for dreams. Sometimes I remember them and sometimes I don't. Sometimes they are beautiful and sometimes they are terrifying. They are a mystery.
Last night, I had several very vivid dreams. I tried to lie in bed and retain some of them, but with Miss Luna howling for her breakfast, it didn't last.
I was taking a tour of a large piece of land in autumn. The leaves were fire red and the ground was covered. The land was owned by a friend and right next to a park. And I think we were exploring the property because we were going to build a house there....
I was in a forest of red and yellow and orange. It was like a shrine with five stones, standing about waist high from the earth. Each stone was carved with a symbol and covered in lichen. They were symbols I was supposed to know. I was leaving an offering....
I was in a room with several people. We were watching some video, though I don't remember why we were. None of us spoke the same language, and we all wondered why the other people were there. There were numbers on the video, like someone was doing calculations. People started shouting out the answers in whatever language they knew. Everyone was laughing. Then we started telling each other our numbers, teaching just that one part of a language that other people in the room didn't know....
I am grateful for my life. For all its ups and downs, all that I struggle and all that I hurt, and all the sadness that I've seen and felt. I'm still grateful for it. And for all the breaths I've taken, for all the beautiful sunsets I've seen, for the loving touch of another life upon this Earth. For feeling the wind through my hair and my tears on my cheeks. Sometimes it's wonderful and sometimes it's hard and one time I almost made an end of it because it hurt so much. I'm grateful for my life, for all of that, everything that is life. I've learned the value of it and I'm so glad I held on to it.
I am grateful for my creativity. It means I always have something to do. It doesn't mean I don't get idle or bored, but if I need something to do and I don't know what, I can always create something. Anything. Try a new craft, pull out on old project, even researching something new to create is an enjoyable task.
I am grateful for my mom. She's such an awesome lady and I love that we can spend time together as friends. That means she respects me as an adult, which I take as a compliment. Her sister once told me "I don't think you could ever do anything to make her really angry at you. You're like her best friend." I'm so thankful for how our relationship has grown. Even as I can count her among my friends, she'll always be my mom.
I am grateful for my job. It's totally stressful and sometimes it really sucks, but it pays my mortgage and I'm glad to have it. I know I'd be far worse off without one and, while I don't like the idea of having to find a new one, I'll be happy to be out of it once I do. Regardless, I know I'm fortunate to have what I have and I'm thankful for that.
I am grateful for my sweet kitties. They make me smile, they calm my nerves. They cuddle close at night. I sometimes worry about them, worry if I'm doing the best I can for them, but I am so glad I have them in my life. My home wouldn't be the same without them.
I am grateful for my friends in all their variety. I'm grateful for their conversation, their support, their ability to entertain, their help. And I'm grateful for the chance to be for them what they are for me.
I am grateful for my boyfriend. He's talented and creative,
open and honest. He's kind, caring, and puts up with me even when I'm in a
nasty, grouchy mood. I wasn't ready to have him in my life this way when we met,
and maybe he wasn't ready for me then either, but I know I am so lucky to have
him now. He is one of the most beautiful people I know.
I don't know. I'm actually rather depressed right now. I'm thankful that my dad came over last night to install the new thermostat in the water heater, but it didn't work. The water coming out of the hot tap was actually colder than the cold tap this morning. I don't know what the next move is. I'm feeling more frustrated than grateful.
I'm grateful that I have a house at all. Even if important systems break a lot and I don't have the money to fix them. It's still a roof over my head and it's my roof. Owning a home was a life goal of mine, and I did it. It's not the best, and I'm struggling, but I did it and it's mine. I'm grateful for that.
I walk the path that is my life. I know not where it will take me. It is a journey marked with wonders: new things, creative springs, simple pleasures that keep my days bright. Learning is my purpose, creating is on my trail, the destination is yet unknown. Come walk with me for a time. You may find something you did not know you were seeking.
