The organised chaos

Giving thanks

Something is missing from my life.

But I am thankful for all that I have.
I am not a deeply religious person but recently, I have started this habit of reflecting on my day and giving thanks every night before I drift into slumber land.
If it is a bad day, I am thankful that I got through it.
If it has been a good day, I am thankful that everything is smooth sailing.

I thank the powers that be for the man I call my husband – even if he doesn’t turn the lights off when he leaves the room.
I am thankful that even though I have to wear a mouthguard for the rest of my life, I discovered the problem before I lost my teeth.
I am grateful that I can still swim and exercise, even though my right back, right leg and left shoulder blade aches so (I’m so injury-prone!).
I am happy that I can finally breathe through my nose, even if it means using a nasal spray for the rest of my life.
I am grateful for the gift of sight, even if I am allergic to contact lens and have to wear glasses forever.
I am thankful for the extra 15 minutes of sleep my husband thoughtfully indulges me with while he makes breakfast.
I am grateful for a great boss who guides me with so much patience and freedom.
I am thankful for a good cat who doesn’t scratch our furniture and who makes us laugh every single day.

More importantly, I am grateful for the chance to live life.
