I am thankful for the air; air so cool and crisp it makes your lungs swell with joy. I'm thankful for the air, so warm and humid the hair around my face makes tiny ringlets.
I am thankful for fall leaves, and summer leaves, and spring leaves, and the way the snow coats the tree branches in winter.
I am thankful for color. God could have easily given us a black and white world or black and white vision. But he gave us an enormous spectrum of color for nature, art, and our everyday happiness.
I am thankful for music; clap-along, dance-along, cry-along music. I am thankful for Strauss. And Bach. And Mozart. I am thankful that someone had the bright idea to invent the harp, and the violin.
I am thankful for nature and art and gardens and tea and chocolate. God gave us hundreds of different flavors to taste, when he didn't have to make any. But he did. Just for us.
I am thankful.
