Just thankful for everything

by Barbara Jean

Just thankful for everything

I am thankful to have my dad, for he was there when I needed him the most during a tragic loss in my life.

I am thankful to have my mom, for the times she pushed me to go on when I didn't think I could go any further.

I am thankful for my daughter, even though she has passed away; she will always be in my heart.

I am thankful to have my sister, for not just being my sister but also my friend when I need someone to talk to.

I am thankful for my grandma; without her I wouldn't laugh and smile every day.

I am thankful to have my cats, which are there when I'm lonely.

I am thankful to have my boyfriend, who has been by my side no matter what.

I am thankful to have friends; without them I would be speechless.

I am thankful for everyone in my life, which makes me thankful for living.
