Being Thankful…

This week’s Top Sites Tuesday meme through BlogDumps is to write about three things that I am thankful for. This is going to be a hard one given that I am extremely thankful for so many things in and about my life (I gather some of you are shocked given my cynical whinges ever so often??)

If I had to narrow it down to 3 things it would have to be the following:

My parents: I am so thankful to have them. Yes, while growing up my sis and I thought they were horrible and awful (like each and every one of us does!) But they trusted us. They were never abusive like some parents out there. They provided us with the basics…and more. They encouraged us. They supported us on the paths we wanted to take. And they continue to do so… [My sis too is someone I am thankful for…and she has been extremely supportive too…]

Having a job: I know my work can be stressful and I’ve complained more than once. But I don’t think I have ever mentioned how grateful I am to be working in a field I love. To have that job to pay my bills. To have that job that helps me keep a roof over my head. To have that job that puts food on my table. To have that job where I feel fulfilled. To be doing something I want to do. And to be able to make a difference in at least one child or adolescent’s life…

My friends: I am not an extroverted person. But once I make friends, I aim to keep them for life. I am fortunate to have made some amazing friends through school, college and now here at uni. And they are still there. Yes, the distance in terms of kilometres has grown, but we still make an effort to keep in touch. I am so grateful to have friends that have stuck by me through good times and through the shitty times. Yes, I have had a fallout with a couple but others are still around.

So there you go…three things that I am truly thankful for.

What are you thankful for? Do share.

Until next time,

Cheers!!!
