Thankful ~

My life isn't perfect, but I am thankful for everything I have...

Some of the things I have learnt in life.  True then and still true today.
Looking forward to another very relaxing day at home.  Being sick has a few
 good merits.  I get to do absolutely nothing all day.  Truth is I
 am getting a tad bit bored, loving it at least until Monday.

Even if it kills you I always advise, "put on a happy face."

Said a friend of mine not so long ago.  We all have had a sample of this 
in one way or another.  Unfortunately, some more than others.  Called life.

Grief is something I know a lot about.  Many think that there is a time limit for grief,
 that's because that person has no idea what grief is all about.  We do not let
 it fester in us.  We do not sit home crying all day.  It's just something that's
 there and some days it is more overwhelming than others.  Some days
 it just rips you apart, and just like that you start all over again.

I try to remind everyone including myself, that life is not always what
we want, nor how we want it to be.  At times it can be downright harsh, cruel
 and depressing, but on the other hand there are times when we also
 need to sit back, reflect and appreciate all the goodness around us.

There is always always something to be grateful for.  Sometimes
many of us tend to forget this.  I include myself here, but then
I look around me and I am thankful for the opportunity I have to wake
 up everyday and appreciate another day full of life and love.

Good morning everyone.  May today be a day we learn to appreciate
all the goodness, kindness, compassion and love we have surrounding us.

Keep in mind that someone else is happy 
with a lot less than what you have...
