In this season of Thanksgiving, I was reminded that we all get snowed under by day-to-day life. Too many errands to do, too much work — keep the house tidy, look after the kids. Life can be a whirlwind sometimes. But when you hear of bad news, or you get bad news yourself, it kind of reminds you what we should really be thankful for.
I’m thankful to the rabbit that has made my yard its home and opens my children’s eyes with delight every time they see it. I’m thankful to the spider who teases me by popping in and out of my bathroom plughole, because it reminds me that life can be snuffed out in an instant. I’m grateful to my dog that barks at everyone who comes within 100 yards of the house since, whilst it’s extremely annoying to everyone, I know he’s trying to keep me safe.
It’s not just animals either. Humans, believe it or not, can also be nice people, too. I know, it doesn’t seem like it some days, does it? But that guy who cuts the corner at a crossroad — we should be thankful to him. He reminds us how dangerous it is on the road and to slow down and take a deep breath.
