Thankful Part 1

To be thankful for external things, one must first be thankful for what he/she sees in the mirror

My hair which catches the spring breeze

My eyes which capture the beauty of this world and all that surrounds me

My nose which enables me to identify the edibleness of delectable food and the sweetness of every flower

My mouth which allows me to taste the refreshing water and fulfilling bread

My ears that hear the stillness of the night, and the rush of the ocean

My legs which allow for superior movement to get me where I need to be

My arms which enable me to reach for a friend’s hand, or give him/her an embrace

My fingers to touch things in my world, and to caress the face of the one I love

My feet and toes to feel the sand below me, and to propel myself forward on this path

My mind that brings me intellect, thoughts, and memories

My heart that pumps blood through my veins keeping my body sustained

My personified heart which knows no limits, no bounds; which allows me to feel the deep sensations and feelings this world offers me

I am thankful for my being, my health, my life, and the opportunities I have been given. I am even more thankful for those who surround me like my friends and family

What are you thankful for?
