I am thankful for the change of the colors in the spectrum of nature, ranging from the shiny yellows of the sun, to the ends of its sun rays--with every hue of happiness reminding others that smiling is the best of all colors.
I am thankful of the dark & soily ground, which reminds me of the taste of dirt in my mouth, from all the times I have fallen, and all the times I broke my soul's bones as I landed.
Allow me to say I'm thankful for the hardships and the brokenness, not because I enjoy it, but because I realized that strength is my most remarkable beauty mark.
I am thankful, because in the transformation of the leaves, your fingers run across my arm changing the colors of my veins with every stroke.
I am thankful, because the branches of every tree have rendered to its painful weight of gravity, allowing the heart to feel weightless, free, and determined.
I am thankful for the sky that glows of accomplishments through its clouds in the mornings, yet at night...it is freckled with stars that shine unnoticed through pain and sadness.
I am grateful for it all, because in a moment unforeseen, I will be gone, and all of this will seem like a millisecond, wrapped in one blink...just gone.
I am thankful for God for he is the rising sun of my mornings, the stars that light in my darkness, the trees that allow me to inhale one more breath, and the ground that catches me in every one of my failings.
Allow me to be thankful one more time.
