Oh, How I Am Thankful

I don't take this great life for granted, and there are many people and even things I am thankful for on a daily basis. When I sat down to write in my morning journal, I decided to write a list of those things I am thankful for. And holy smokes! It's a long, long list. But it also seems somewhat lame when written in list form. My list mixes together the very, very important with the superficial. For example, right under "Zoe", I listed "my bathtub"- Do those two things even belong on the same list? And how can I put both "Fermin" and "my car" on the same list?

Well, they all made the list because, altho certainly not all equal in significance, it all adds up to this life I live. Big things, and little things. Meaningful stuff, and stuff that's embarrassingly superficial. It's lots of people, some places, and yes, quite a few things. And I'm honestly thankful for it all. All the pieces that make up this wonderful life!

I am thankful for it all!

Hey Kerri, sorry I'm slow to catch up on your blog.

Anyways, I think you're right on about your list and "it all adds up". When I made my annual 'thankful' list the #1 item was 'a good cup of coffee in the morning'.

A good life is truly a sum of all the little good things.
