I am here.

Today I’m thankful.

Thankful because I’m here

So often we get caught up

With many blessings around us

That we can’t see

There’s got to be something more

And the truth is, there is more

But we’re thinking of the wrong more

More than the blessings that I can see right here

More than a roof over my head and clothes to wear and people around me who care

We forget not only these blessings-

But the ones we can’t see

The blessing that someone cared enough to die

To take our place

To finish our race

To conquer once and for all what we started at the fall and finally bring us back home.

We forget to be thankful that we’re not alone

We forget to be in awe of little things

Like rain and hugs and leaves on trees

We forget to stop racing and simply be.

To thank God for little things.

 

Today I’m thankful.

I’m thankful that I’m here.
