I am grateful. I am grateful for this life. I am grateful for the sun this morning. I am grateful for my lovely pets. I am grateful for the fresh salad I had this morning. I am grateful for my job. Without it, I don’t know how where I’d be right now. I am grateful for the flowers growing in my backyard. I am grateful for my home, my own shelter. I am grateful for every little thing that makes my soul flutter and heart smile.
But, most of all, I am grateful for the people in my life.
Friends, family, lover, this goes out to you…
You know who you are. You know how much you mean to me. You know what I would do for you… You know it all, and yet I feel like I must say it once more. I have this sudden wave of emotions inside of me that I must let flow. So, here it is…
To all of the people who hold my hand and guide me through life when I feel too weak to keep going, thank you. Thank you for being my pillar of strength. Thank you for being my extra pair of legs. Thank you for your guidance. Thank you for making my life easier. Thank you for stabilizing my ground. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for reminding me that I have the power within me.
To all of you who try to understand me even when I sound irrational, thank you. Thank you for putting yourself in my shoes. Thank you for embracing the way I am. Thank you for keeping an open mind and heart. Thank you for listening to me. Thank you for never judging me. Thank you for encouraging and assuring me that everything will be okay.
To all of you who love me even when I am the least loveable person earth, thank you. Thank you for proving me that unconditional and pure love does exist and it knows no boundaries. Thank you for putting up with me. Thank you for accepting my flaws as a crucial part of who I am. Thank you for never forcing me to change, but rather secreting pointing out my flaws and helping me work through my issues. Thank you for holding my hands even in the scariest, heaviest thunderstorms. Thank you for always having my back while I am busy fighting my battles.
You’ve seen me at my best and you’ve seen me at my worst. You know my strengths, but you also know my weaknesses. You’ve met my demons and you’ve helped me survive many of my own merciless fights. You’ve been there for me through thick and thin, and you’ve been my light, every step of the way. You’ve been there for me when I was down in the gutter and you are still here for me, now that I am high up where I’ve always strived to be.
You’ve met the worst parts of me, and yet you still love me. You still care for me like no out there. You’d still do anything for me. Just as I would do anything for you, my loves…
So, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am forever grateful to you for showing me the way, for being my guidance in the darkest hours, for proving me the real meaning of commitment and love, for always giving me more than I deserve. You are the reason I breathe. You are the reason am who I am today.
