Today I’m thankful for

Today I’m thankful for the simple thing in life.

I’m thankful for my husband who brings me tea when I’m not feeling well because that’s what husbands that care do. He’d do this everyday if needed, which is just one of many reasons I love him.

I’m thankful for my family that loves me for me, even when I make mistakes. I would be nothing without them.

I’m thankful to those who cannot be with me today in person but are around me in spirit. I see reflections of them in me and am reminded that things will happen that I don’t understand but that someone has a bigger plan out there for me.

I’m thankful for friends—old and new—who remind me that a daily dose of laughing can put life in perspective. Without this, the tough days would be that much tougher.

I’m thankful for a job that has meaning at an organization that has a mission to save people’s lives. The same job also provides me the downtime needed to pursue my passion for writing, photography and giving back.

I’m thankful for the community I live in and all of the people that make this place that thousands vacation to every year, my home.

I’m thankful for my health and the stubborn Fin within me that’s helped me accomplish things I never thought I could do.

I’m thankful for the simple process behind a freshly roasted cup of coffee and the quiet moments I have to enjoy it.

But most importantly, I’m thankful that life has taught me early on to savor these simple moments in life because when all is said and done, they are the only things that will matter.

What are you most thankful for today?
