Thanksgiving Friday: What I Am Thankful For

I got home safely

I wasn't feeling well on Wednesday and while travelling back home, things got worse. I had very bad abdominal pain. I wanted to get home as soon as possible but got stuck in traffic and it took longer but i'm grateful and thankful that I made it home safely. Nothing serious happened on the bus. 


Give someone a compliment and make their day


I met an elderly lady who said: "You are so nice, I will pray for you" just for no reason. I was blushing, she totally made my day. 

It made me wonder that compliments like this don't cost money but they mean a lot and can make somebody happy. Why don't I try to do that? So I have decided that I will try my best to speak good and try and compliment people. You too should give it a try. 


I am thankful that I have a abled body

I saw an elderly gentleman who was walking alone finding his way with the help of a walking cane/walking stick. I kept staring at him and started thinking of all the things I have taken for granted. 

I have said it before and I say it again, it's the simplest things in life that matters the most and the one we take for granted. 

I am thankful for having the opportunity to be one of the person who has a normal body. You and I need to appreciate it a bit more.

Hope you all had a wonderful week. No matter how hard your life may be, always remember that there is someone out there who doesn't have food to eat or a too over their head. Be grateful and thankful for what you have, no matter how big or how small it may be.

  1. A really beautiful thankful post. We take a lot of these things for granted. I always try to compliment people because it really does make people's day, but I find it is not done often enough

    1. I totally agree and I personally am guilty of it. It's such an easy thing to do yet we cannot be bothered and are so selfish about it.

    1. I am doing better Rena, thank you for your concern.

      I take things for granted and it's people like this reminds me that I am lucky to have what I have. Unfortunately, not everybody is born with a roof over their head.

      Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Take care and stay safe.
