Today I am going to write about gratitude. I am going to share with you some things I am grateful for. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year because it is about being thankful and of course all of the great food and football!
I am grateful for my life. Thank you mom and dad for giving me life! Life is a gift and we make it what we choose. If you want the life you dream of get off your ass and make it happen, don’t wait for it to happen because you will have a long wait. Stay positive and create your own happiness. You are in charge of your life. You have to do things in life that others won’t and in return you will have things others can’t.
I am grateful for all of my family, friends and acquaintances. I learn from each and every person that crosses my path. Whether it is a positive or a negative situation with that person, I learn something about them and myself. I love people!! I love socializing and hearing people’s stories.
I am very grateful for the elderly. The elderly people have lived so many years and have so many experiences, so many stories to tell. The elderly have paved a path on this planet for us. The elderly are our relatives! My great grandmother, a petite Italian lady that did not speak much English lived to be 105 years old! That is old! Good for her! When I was a little girl she used to pinch my cheeks so hard and speak to me in Italian and I had not clue what she was saying to me but I assumed with her smiling at me and squeezing my cheeks so hard that she loved me so much. My great grandfather past away when I was 2 years old. I have a memory of him playing catch with a ball with me on the walkway in front of his house. I feel very close to him even though I never got the chance to know him, but I can tell you anyone that knows him has all nice things to say about him.
There are so many things in life to be grateful for! Show gratitude, live life to the fullest and take in every experience in life to the fullest, it means a lot! Take in the little things in life, it is what matters.
