Today, I’m Thankful For…

On this very day: November 1st – 15th of 2019:

  1. Today I am thankful for… scarfs and jackets. It’s currently winter and the distance between my parked car and work location was quite a long walk. I cannot imagine bracing the cold without my scarf and jacket to keep me warm. I’m thankful that I have a jacket and scarf to keep me warm.
  2.  Today I am thankful for…a car with a functioning heater & escaping what would have been a deadly accident.
  3. Today I am thankful for…my mother’s health. She’s feeling much better now.
  4. Today I am thankful for…my bed. It was one of those days where I needed to stop by home to rest a little before heading back out. I’m thankful for the privilege of having a place to call home.
  5. Today I am thankful for…the nice beautiful weather. The sun was out and it wasn’t as cold. A perfect weather for a stroll.
  6. Today I am thankful for…journey mercies away and back home.
  7. Today I am thankful for…a tolerable pain. Could have been worse, but it wasn’t.
  8. Today I am thankful for…my tires. One of them could have busted but it didn’t. Thankfully, I was able to get them changed.
  9. Today I am thankful for…my car engine. While driving, the car stopped in the middle of the road while making funny noise. I took it to get checked out—& was told if I had pressed the accelerator any faster the engine would have blown up. I thank God for his daily protection.
  10. Today I am thankful for…my health. That I can squeeze my hands, I can smell, I can see, I can hear, I can sit, I can walk, I can swallow, I can talk, I can remember the street I travelled on yesterday, I can remember my name, I can smile, …etc. It’s all a big deal and a privilege that I’m well aware of and deeply grateful for.
  11. Today I am thankful for…sound sleep. That I can close my eyes and get a good sleep in without having trouble breathing or any discomfort. Thankful!
  12. Today I am thankful for…a good home cooked meal. Some have food, but cannot eat. Some can eat, but have no food. I have both & for that I’m grateful.
  13. Today I am thankful for…my vision. I can’t imagine doing life without sight. I truly cannot imagine. I’m deeply grateful that I have functioning eyes to see.
  14. Today I am thankful for…friends and family.
  15. Today I am thankful for…Friday. I thank God it’s Friday because it has been a very exhausting week and I’m excitedly looking forward to the weekend.
