I am grateful

Sometimes I think I forget how awesome my friends truly are. I don't know how I would get on without them, mainly because that would mean I have to be alone all of the time and I hate the feeling of being alone, especially now. Loneliness is scary but sometimes I think that it's something you have to go through. Believe me, I am not a fan. But maybe you have to be able to conquer that loneliness to truly enjoy the company of others...but I digress....

Things that I'm grateful for. These are things you don't think about often. I mean, who goes up to someone or says to them self, I am sooo grateful for blah blah blah. But this is my list...
1.My family: They are a crazy, crazy bunch. But I love them! They are always there, no matter how much they irk me or bother me. They are my family and I can always go to them no matter what.
2. My friends: They are an exceptional bunch. I only have a few, but I love them. They have helped me so much, especially over the past few months. I love you guys!
3. My health: I may joke that I'm falling apart, but really, I'm doing pretty good. Yes, I may wish that my knees didn't suck so much but hey, what can you do, right?
4. God: I'm not a super religious person, but I believe that God is out there somewhere. I pray and I hope that God listens and that what I need from him happens. It's all a be abyss of, "what's going to happen and why is this happening to me?!", which again, I am not a fan of, but I don't think God gives us anything that we can't handle. No matter how poorly you truly think you're handling it...
5. My education: I've always worked hard for good grades because I've wanted to do better for myself. I know it's up to me and what I make of everything that is given to me and everything that I have to work for.

For me, I just need to remember all of these things, especially during those "dark days" that I tend to have. What are you grateful for??

  1. I'm grateful for potatoes...

    Honestly, you've got a good list going. I'm grateful for my ability to rise above when I didn't think I could. I'm grateful for the fact that there is a light at the end of a tunnel, even if I can't see it. I'm grateful for my family and friends. I'm grateful for love, from my cat, from my do, from my parents, from my friends. Love, even if it's not from *him* is what's kept me going.
