Hello everybody and welcome to day 9 of the 30 days of gratitude challenge.
Todays prompt is PLACE. What place are you grateful for today?
Today, as I am spending the day at home, the place I would like to give thanks for is, you guessed it, my home.
My home is my safe place. My place where I can relax fully and enjoy being comfortable. I have my bedroom with a bed, somewhere for me to sleep peacefully at night and rest my head. I have a kitchen in which I can cook whatever I please (or whatever I’m able, I’m certainly no chef), a living room where I spend time with my family watching films and eating dinner, and I have a bathroom where I can wash and relax with a nice hot bubble bath if I so desire. Oh, and I have a garden where I can sunbathe, have BBQ’s and enjoy the outdoors! I am so thankful for my home.
I really think it’s so easy for people to take their homes for granted. If you don’t know what it’s like to be without a home why would you necessarily think to give thanks for the roof over your head? It’s easy to forget how fortunate we are, and how something that seems like such a birthright even, something we’ve known our whole lives- a home, is something that many people are surviving without and it’s absolutely bizarre to think that there are people out there with not even a roof over their head. A house should not be a luxury, everybody deserves a safe place to rest their head at night and I for one will never ever take my home for granted, because I consider myself so thankful to have been born into a family who can provide for me and bless me with a home to live in!
Which place are you most grateful for today? Let me know in the comments below.
