    What I Am Thankful For

    I am thankful for a lot. I'm alive. I'm a survivor. I can breathe. I can move. I can talk. I can see. I can look around. I can smell. I can taste. I can chew my food. I can swallow. I can smile. I can cry. I can laugh. I can touch. I can feel. I can go to the bathroom. I can...

    All of the Little, Simple Things.

    And it isn't a whole lot, either.  But, you know, I think it's a lot more than many people do have, so I'm looking at the glass as being half-full.  Bashing myself for what isn't right or what's missing never helped me in the past.  Rarely has being hard on myself...

    I Am Thankful For A Lot Of My Things

    But at the same time, I need a little more than what I have. I need more than what I'm getting out of life. While I do appreciate and love the gadgets I have and all of that, there's more to life than just materials, you know? I'm thankful for them, but I need more than just...
