Nothing can be any better

"There is no such thing in anyone's life as an unimportant day."  Alexander Woollcott
Ever woke up one morning dreaming about waking up that precise moment? I just did. Then I lazily crawled back to my bed thinking that must have been a dream. But it wasn't, as my alarm promptly announced seconds later...

How can I doubt it? I should never doubt it. Everyday is new, nothing can be any better! And, what better thing to do this early than to be, well, thankful.
I'm thankful for the bed I just woke up in because that reminds me I have a home. And that I've been safe and warm all night...

I'm thankful for having a job to go to today because this tells me I'm alive and well and productive. Also, that I've made good friends at work...

I'm thankful for my cat who cries at four in the morning —everyday, without fail— demanding his feed because that gives me another wake up call in case my alarm failed. My Dad agrees.

I'm thankful for my guitar hanging over my bed because that reminds me I can sing whenever I just don't know what to say. Though that may not always sound better than my cat...

I'm thankful for my Mom sleeping tightly in the next room because that means she lived through a tough day yesterday and that I'll get to see her smile again an hour later.

I'm thankful for my Dad's 63rd birthday yesterday because that proves he's survived another year being patient with me every morning as we drove to work. Because I can be very grumpy in the morning, and I also sleep while he drives... sometimes.

I'm thankful for yesterday's good and bad times. because what use is it to be thankful only for the good? Don't our bad times teach us the most? That's just the way it is.
And the list can go on and on and on. This I agree with strongly, "For all that has been, thanks. For all that shall be, yes." (Dag Hammarskjold)
