I’m also thankful for sunshine. 🙂 Aren’t you soooo thankful you’re free to walk outside and look at the sky whenever you want to? How incredible it is that we have the freedom to do this.
I’m thankful for grass! Now… this might sound like a silly thing to be thankful for, but if you have lived in Hong Kong like me, you will know that grass is a “highly sought after commodity”! So much so that the tiny, manicured patches of grass throughout the city are fenced off and guarded by secret service agents! (Well maybe not, but there are security guards protecting every piece of lawn and watching like hawks to see if anyone dares to walk on it!) Honestly, it’s crazy! I was sitting at the top of IFC Mall, overlooking HK Harbour, and my feet were touching a tiny patch of grass….. within 30 seconds of me doing this I was approached by a security guard and asked to move off the grass!! Ha! So… now you can see why I am thankful for grass here in Australia.
I’m thankful that I live near the beach. It’s just ten minutes from my house and I really love being able to jump in the car and be there so quickly. How good is a walk along the foreshore or to lay on a towel with a fabulous book?
