Why I am Grateful




Why I am Grateful

Swimming on summer days

With warm weather and blue skies.

Hot cocoa by the fire, 

On long winters nights.

Sleeping in on Saturday,

And eating waffles for breakfast.

Getting a good grade on a test

When you thought you would fail.

Lying on the grass,

Looking at a starry night sky.

Sitting down and relaxing

After accomplishing something hard. 

Dancing.

Jumping.

Running.

Feeling free.

Feeling me.

Every laugh.

Every tear.

But the thing that makes these all so special.

Is that I get to spend it with my friends and family.

Because they are always there for me.

That’s what I’m grateful for.
