I woke up today and was thinking while lazing in bed-

...I'm so grateful I can wake up any time I want every single day and just lay in bed.
...I'm so grateful I have a job that allows me to work anytime and place I want and spend lots of time with my kids.
...I'm so grateful that it's yet another perfect  cloudless sunny warm day full of singing birds, warm soft breezes, good music, smell of fresh coffee, kisses and hugs from my kids and million opportunities to do absolutely whatever I want.
...I'm so grateful that I live near one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, that I have a car and freedom to drive anywhere, to eat anything I desire and that I have a lovely home and I can just choose to be lazy in my garden all day long if I wish.
...I'm so grateful that I have these wonderful loving kids, husband, family and friends and everyone is alive and healthy.
...I'm so grateful that I have a healthy body and mind.

Honestly, there are many people richer than me, but I couldn't wish for a wealthier life than what I already have. You can be a businessman in Silicon Valley working for big corporations, making top $$$ and have a huge mansion, but there's no way I would change my life and what I have for any of it.

Then later I saw my cousin's best friend's husband just passed away  pale He was younger than me, they had been together since middle school and had 2 little daughters together. I can't imagine the pain she must be going through right now. It really rattles you when someone you know dies, but when the person is younger than you and it happens so suddenly, it really makes you remember how fragile life is, how fast everything can change and how any of us can be gone in a second.

Time to stop and savor the fact that I exist, just to breathe in deeply, feel the warmth of the sun on my skin, pay attention to all the little silly things kids are saying, even though they've just said it 34 times in a row, give more kisses and hugs, argue, worry or nag less and just remember that life happens now, don't let it go by while living in dreams for what will happen in the future or worries about everyday stresses.
The best day of your life is today, if you don't feel like it now, then you'll never feel it because you'll always be too busy to notice or too concentrated on what still needs fixing, it's not like it ever gets all fixed and complete.

I'm grateful for being healthy and having a healthy family.
I'm grateful for performing really well in one of my exams (87.5/100 points, my result was the best from my class).
I'm grateful for not performing too well in my other exam, because it was like a cold shower for me and now I know I need to work harder and also what kind of mistakes I should avoid.
I'm grateful for the good weather (it's sunny and hot - finally!).
I'm grateful for having amazing and supportive friends.
I'm grateful for having some of the best (and most exigent) teachers my high school has to offer.
I'm grateful for being ntroduced to this forum and met some amazing people.
I'm grateful for having new goals to achieve.

I'm grateful for eating cherries today. They are really expensive now, but a relative has a tree and gifted us some. They were delicious! Very Happy
