What Am I Thankful For?

DJ had one last assignment this week, before Thanksgiving break. He had to write about what he was thankful for. He decided to write in the form of poetry, and you can read it on his blog. Now I get to write out mine.

Thankful means to feel relief or great gratitude. So what am I thankful for? Well, how can you just pick one thing for which you should give thanks, yet how can you say you would be thankful for all that encompasses your life. Hmm, well for me, I am one of those annoying people who sees the glass as always half full, never half empty. I am an optimist, yet realist. I don't believe in misery, depression, or even being sad for any length of time. Before you assume I must have lived some rosy perfect life to have such an attitude. No, this is the furthest thing from the truth. I have had awful, sad, really bad things happen to me. But, I have also experienced the wisdom and strength those things have afforded me. I have also had beautiful, wonderful things occur in my life, that have shaped and molded me to be the person I am today. So, on this Thanksgiving Day, and every day I am thankful, grateful and relieved for all the experiences that have encompassed my whole life to this very day. Without them what would I be thankful for? I wouldn't be me or where I am. Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers, family, friends, and all who celebrate this wonderful holiday.
