Last night while I was in lying in bed trying to go to sleep, I was thinking about all that I’m grateful for.

It’s rather exhausting.

I have so much to be grateful for.

Food to eat
Water to drink
Shelter
Running water for a shower and a toilet
Electricity and gas for air condition and heat
Fans to keep me cool
Trash and sewage
A car
The ability to pay for my most basic needs
Clothes
Health insurance
The military and police to keep us safe
The EMS to help us
My education
The ability to run
Time to read and write
A handful of people who I love and care about and who love me and care about me
Freedom
My health
My personal and professional experiences
A loving and caring wife
Loving and caring parents
The traveling I’ve done
The good food I’ve eaten
Technology that makes life easier
My hometown and my new town
The schools I’ve graduated from
My mind, body, and heart
Old and new friends
Books
Writing
A bed
Sleep

This is just how my mind works. It just keeps going and going. It gets exhausting.

I appreciate the simplest things in life the most.

If you think about it, there’s so much to be thankful and grateful for.

Happy Thanksgiving! ❤️
