Tonight I was thinking of what I had to be grateful for… feeling a little lost; lonely—not particularly happy with my work ethic—not particularly thrilled with my strength of character.

And I stopped, and took a breath. And I realized I am just glad to be alive.

I am grateful for Life.

And suddenly, my beautiful family, my beautiful friends, my dreams and aspirations…

My beautiful life. Yes; I am grateful to be alive.
