With the swift arrival of the holiday season, I thought it might be an appropriate time to list the things that I am most thankful for in my life. It will be a feeble attempt, as there is no possible way to list all the things that life has blessed me with on my journey.
Peace in my home country
A warm bed at night
Food for my belly
A neighbor that I consider part of my family, even though we aren’t related
Freedom to live my life openly
A great job
My pastor, who is also my friend
A comfortable home
And tears, because they make us all a little more human
I hope that this season finds you with plenty of food to eat, a warm place to rest, and peace in your heart. Happy Thanksgiving!
