Little Things

Today, I am thankful for the little things.

//I’m thankful for smooth pens/ /I’m thankful for Netflix//I’m thankful for sunlight/ /I’m thankful for snow/ /I’m thankful that I know how to read and write/ /I’m thankful for science class/ /I’m thankful for duck tape bookmarks/ /I’m thankful for Adventures in Odyssey/ /I’m thankful for technology that helps me connect with out-of-town friends/ /I’m thankful for Pinterest/ /I’m thankful for sweat pants/ /I’m thankful for red lipstick/ /I’m thankful for February/ /I’m thankful for back packs/ /I’m thankful for my youth pastor/ /I’m thankful for carpet/ /I’m thankful for maple syrup/ /I’m thankful for lovely handwriting/ /I’m thankful for nail polish/ /I’m thankful for hoodies (and hugs *winks at OYANers*)/ /I’m thankful for cute socks/ /I’m thankful for milk/ /I’m thankful for a sister who’s willing to drive me places/ /I’m thankful that I have the freedom to live my faith openly/ /I’m thankful for floofy hair *points at Anna, Ariana and Rudy*/ /I’m thankful for moonlight/ /I’m thankful for memories of summer nights//

It’s the little things that make life so enjoyable, even when I’m behind on school and haven’t seen my friends in ages and my room is a mess and I feel like a failure. It’s the cute Coke bottles, the colorful bandannas, the crunch of potato chips. Because no matter your situation, it’s the little things that are always there.

What are some little things you’re grateful for?
