I am thankful for my family;
For their love and understanding,
For their patience and caring,
For their loyalty and devotion.
I am thankful for my friends;
For their shoulders to lean on,
For their wit and their humour,
For their enthusiasm and support.
I am thankful for the good days;
For the successes and triumphs,
For the brightness and light,
For the hope and serenity they bring.
And strangely enough … I am thankful for the bad days;
For the trying times,
For the endless questions they bring …
For without these lows,
How could I possibly appreciate the highs?
