Gratitude

I am thankful for both what I do and do not have. I am thankful for all my abilities and inabilities. The inabilities make me strive to be a better person and give me something to aim for. I am thankful that I have wonderful friends and family that love and support me. I am also thankful that I do not have the opposite. I am thankful for my life and all of my sences. I am thankful for the lessons I have learned in life and for those in which I have yet to learn. I am thankful that I look for the good in life and not focus on the bad. I am thankful for my health and well being as well as my intelligence. I am thankful for my education and my career. I am thankful I am able to love whole heartedly and see the best in people. I am thankful for my material possesions , although not most important, but the comfort they bring me. I am thankful for every breath I take , the food I eat , the shelter I have. I am thankful that I see the beauty in life and am able to experience it in all facets. I am thankful I am able to share.

Thank you Universe for all that I am and all that I am yet to be!!

Aye, well said. Without the bitter, sweet is without referance.<br />
The exercise of thankfullness is a healing thing for all!

I am thankful for problems to solve. I am thankful that my life is not too easy, because if it were, it wouldn't be precious. I am as thankful for rainy days as I am for sunny ones. And I am thankful for death - because - as Orson Welles observed, "It is the knowledge of death that gives life its salt."

its good to be thankful :D
