This thread is in praise of the miracle of life. Post what you are grateful for, what keeps you breathing, what puts a smile on your face, etc.

Let the love of life be known to the universe

I am grateful for:

my friends here at ATS/BTS
for this chance to learn in this lifetime
this chance to love
the many chance to give
the food that gives me energy
the roof over my head
running water
a bed to rest in
the nature that graces my life

A beautiful thread to start my day, since I spent a good hour crying over the loss of my friend SHOTS yesterday.

Iam truly thankful for my children, and all the joy they bring me.

For ATS, and all the knowledge, friendship, and changes it has brought to my life.

For the sunshine outside my window right now..recharging my much drained batteries.

For the roof over my head, and the food in the kitchen..which sometimes is very hard to keep there..but I've managed to do it.

For everything and everyone in my past, that brought me to the place Iam at today..and made me who Iam.

I am grateful to be alive, right here, right now in this moment.
Here is my celebration song:

"We barely remember what came before this precious moment
Choosing to be here, right now.
Hold on. Stay inside.
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone.
This body makes me feel eternal, all this pain is an illusion."

Well, I'm sure we all saw this one coming:

What keeps me going? My family.

I don't really have a whole lot to be grateful for. The little things in life, I guess. A beautiful day, the sun shining, blue sky, plants growing, birds chirping.... a great song, a funny joke, a smile from a pretty girl....

Don't take this video the wrong way ...

I'm happy to have so many great friends and people that love me who aren't afraid to tell me so.

Among many other things.

I prefer this ALIVE..
And he's freakin' sizzlin hot too!!!!
Woah..AD almost fainted...

Tears to a smile it's a brand new day
Roads take a turn I think I found my way
Words don't always say what they mean
Whisper a prayer, what will it bring, what will it bring now?

And I feel, feel so alive
When I'm with you
Everything's fine
Yeah I feel, feel so alive

I want to fly but I ain't got wings
I want to sing the song you sing
'Cause when I'm with you well I feel

Yeah I feel, feel so alive
When I'm with you
Everything's fine
And I feel, feel so alive

And I feel, feel so alive
When I'm with you
Everything's fine
Yeah I feel, feel so alive...

Believe it or not, I am still alive, no matter how much I have felt dead inside!

I just remember that far more people are worse off than I when I am down!

You guys are the greatest, love you all, and lets keep ticking!

I'm thankful for so much it would take hours to list everything. Here are a few of my favorite things.

I'm thankful and ever so grateful for the life lessons I learned from my parents and grandparents. They made my childhood a fantastic adventure.

My son and daughter make me very proud they are my kids. I'm thankful for them.

Life has been made a new adventure of learning and insight into human nature by my grandchildren. Without them, all 8, I would have a rough time figuring out my cell phone and the other electronic gadgets I buy. I'm thankful for them.

I'm thankful for the earth and all it's critters. I'm especially thankful for my 4 little dogs. They love me unconditionally. From them I receive much joy.

ATS has become a safe harbor in the storms of life. Through it's members I am educated, entertained, scared, and have gained much insight into myself. I am thankful for ATS and every member.

I'm just thankful to be alive in general. Even when everything in your life is going wrong, there's still recognition in the fact that you are lucky enough to be breathing, hearing, seeing, smelling, feeling, tasting, and just experiencing our world.

So, here's to the world and existence itself!

Oh, and my upcoming vacation and new job...guess I should mention those too...
