Being Grateful

During dark and difficult times, it is often hard to think positively, but we must think of everything that we ought to be grateful for:

The smiles and laughter of our children

A roof over our heads

Food on the table

A warm bed

A job, if we have one

Freedom, if we don’t



The smell of cut grass

The song of the birds

A life free from oppression and fear

Living in a democracy

An education

A partner, or a family, or friends, that love us

Someone who brings you a cup of tea when you need it

Enough money to live on

And most importantly, good health

I’m sure you can think of many more!
