For this I am Thankful

I am thankful for more than I show proper appreciation for everyday.

I am thankful...

...for every breath I breathe, and how my chest feels when I take in a lungfull of cool crisp air.

...that I never had to choose between my parents because they are still together and still in love more deeply than any other couple I know.

...that I have two older sisters who really were looking out for me while they tormented.

...for the Grandmother who is still in this world with me and whom I know would lay down everything she has and is to see me well.

...for each of my nieces and nephews for the joy (and drama) that they bring into my life everyday.

...that I always have a safe harbor within a family that will hold me up when I am at my lowest.

...that there is no end to the possibilities of words.

...that I have the warmest ball of fluff to purr me to sleep every night.

...for chenille socks.

...for every second that my laptop is functioning correctly.

...that God granted me skills and abilities that make my life full and lead me to opportunities I otherwise would have been without.

Oh and I am thankful for catching that little black mouse (wild field mouse) that has been bedding down with Puff. Though I let it go and it still sneaks into his cage to sleep.

I hope you all had a safe, warm, and filling Thanksgiving, I know I did.
