Long long ago… a year ago… I started writing out one thing I had been thankful for in each day. Now, these things didn’t have to be major, in fact, many of the items that made the list felt rather small, though if we are honest with ourselves we all know that it is the little things that make life that much better, therefore, it is the little things that truly count.
At any rate, I have failed at this practice miserably! I won’t even pretend and say I have been doing it in secret. I mean, really, I could lie to you and say that I have been perfect, life is perfect, and My Little Ponies are prancing in my apartment as Snow White sings to the birds in the trees outside; you know, f-ing magical… but I won’t because that would be a lie and I would like to think we mean more to each other and value this relationship enough to not tarnish it with petty little lies. So I will fess up and tell you, the last time I actually wrote out what I was thankful for was probably in March? January? One can’t be too sure really.
And so, today I am here to remedy this situation, because today I grow older and with age comes wisdom right? Maybe not just yet… regardless, I most certainly have a lot to be thankful for (… no car accidents or birthday thieves to report just yet) and because today is… well… today, I shall give you 26 things I am thankful for.
