I’m grateful for everything
for the light and dark
and many shades in between.
for everything I’ve lost and found again.
everything I lost and learned to live without.
I’m grateful for church bells ringing at 8am
For the sun setting over the sea in untamed glory
and sweet air that fills me up
and places me squarely on the ground.
For every moment my body fights for my life.
I’m grateful for every time I leaped and was caught.
For everything I didn’t think I could survive
and was proven wrong in the end.
For making me fall
and teaching me to get up again.
