I am thankful for the opportunities that life has given, including a job that I enjoy and continually learn from.
I’m thankful for Snow (my dog) because even if he left paw prints on my pants this morning, I still look forward to giving him belly rubs when I get home.
I’m thankful for my decade-old SUV for not stalling even when it needed an oil change.
I’m thankful for the incessant summer heat bearing down on Cebu. Without sunshine, we would be unable to value rain and the hard work that goes into tilling our rice plantations.
I’m thankful that our summer is marvelous and predictable; that we don’t get unexpected snowfall in the middle of May.
I’m thankful for reggae music playing because despite the heartbroken lyrics it still manages to sound upbeat.
I’m thankful for this moment to be grateful to be alive.
What are you grateful for, friends?

Side Note: Bad morning? All it takes is a bit of gratitude – I was once advised.
