I Am Grateful To You, For……. Everything.
I was just sitting here thinking about you, then I thought I should write you a short letter to say I am grateful.
What’s there not to be grateful for? I’m alive, in good health with few worries… (although I do worry about Arsenal ever winning the English premier league). But apart from that, I’m great. Hands, feet, mental capacity, great family unit, some amazing friends… (very tiny in number but amazing nonetheless).
Of course I am grateful, why wouldn’t I be? I know in the past, it might seem I’m not, but I’ve always been. Going to bed at night and waking up in the morning might seem like I’m taking it all for granted. Maybe it was youthful exuberance, maybe it was me thinking I was superman… but that was all you.
I am convinced those who have walked this earth but have been taken in their prime are not more special than I. Accidents, sudden deaths, terrorist attacks, infernos….they were all special, but they have all joined you.
