Yesterday it was proposed that my gratitude today is for me… Hmmm. I’ve thought that suggestion over, and at the risk of sounding full of myself, I’ll share a couple of thoughts.
I’m grateful that I can smile, and share that with others… I’m grateful for the challenges I’ve been through, as they’ve strengthened me. I’m grateful for my body, as it gives me energy to do, or tells me to slow down. I’m grateful for my passion to make a difference, it gets me out of bed in the mornings.
When I read Aaron’s comment on Facebook yesterday “I think tomorrow you should be grateful for you, coz your such an awesome person” I had the “Awww Shucks” moment, followed by the memory of a very old song from Sunday School days…
“If I was a butterfly, I’d thank you God for giving me wings… If I was a Robin in a tree, I’d thank you God that I can sing… But I just thank you God for making me Me”
Yes I’m thankful I’m me… it’s too much hard work trying to be somebody else!
