So I am grateful for the fact I can remember this day and I can be with those I love. Today will be 2 years for some families, 2 years since they lost a person they loved - tragically, unexpectedly, a devastating loss.
I am grateful for a roof over head
Water from the taps that is safe to drink (for what seemed months we boiled every drop)
a toilet - inside, that flushes
phone lines that work and texts that can be flicked off without thought
Today is a good day to stop and give thanks for the important things of which my life is filled
I am grateful for the things that matter most
