30 Days of Gratitude: Day 12

Today, I am grateful for where I live.

During clinic this afternoon, my friends and I were having a conversation about current issues in the world. It’s a scary place right now, what with all the violence going on. One of my friends said something that really resonated with me. “We should all be grateful that we were born in and live in a peaceful place.” I cannot agree more. Not everyone has that privilege.

I’m thankful that I can walk the streets without fearing for my life. I’m thankful for the freedom I have to practise whatever religion I want. I am thankful that my family is safe. I am thankful for a roof over my head.

I am also thankful for that friend who reminded me of how lucky we all are.

Today, I am grateful for where I live.
