I had a birthday this week. I also have a grandmother who, it appears, is nearing the end at almost 103 years old. Combine those two events, and I've found myself in a contemplative frame of mind.
In last week's TToT post, I listed more than 10 items. (The exact number depends on whether or not you count my typo--I labeled two different items as #11--as one or two things). This week, I'm keeping my list shorter:
1. I am thankful for life. What a gift it is to be here on Earth, have so many different experiences, and meet so many people! When life gets overwhelming or scary, grab onto the hand of a loved one and remember that things will be better soon.
What are you thankful for this week? Please join the Ten Things of Thankful community! We'd love to hear from you!
