What Are You Thankful For?

“There is always something to be thankful for.”

Indeed there is. For me, there’s a number of things:

The warm palette of colors that brew in the sky as the sun rises, welcoming the dawn of a new day.

A place of solitude and silence, like the top of the highest mountain.

The creatives that live in this world, inspiring me in work, and play.

Humans… the ones who I call my family and friends… but even those who pass by and somehow make a positive dent in my day.

And then this thing called life. It wouldn’t be the same without all of the ups and downs that come with it. The surprises it brings opens my eyes to the new, and from that… I can grow.

So that’s what I’m working with… but what about you? What are you thankful for?

I could go on and on…. I’m grateful for my friends and family and I’m grateful for gratitude since it always makes me feel better to be thankful for all… Read more »

Today I’m thankful for warm tea and strong cigarettes.

I just did a post like this. so good to look back and think about how lucky we are.
so easy to get caught up in the little things and really none of it matters.


Thank you for this post, and for the reminder that it brings. This year, to help myself to recognize all that I have to be grateful for, I am participating in a challenge to post a photo to social media with the hashtag #greyscalegrateful. Here is a link to the original challenge. http://www.lightinmyhands.com/t-a-c-o-tuesday-gratitude-in-grayscale/
I challenge all of you to also post a black and white photo (or photos) of what you are grateful for, and use the hashtag. Let’s get the reminder out to everyone! Happy thanksgiving!


I am more thankful for all my new friends I’ve met here.
