I am very grateful..

As I was lying in bed lastnight a thought came across..
'man, I am so grateful to have all that I have'.
After thinking about it, I named ten things I am grateful for, wanna know what they are?
Well for starters:
1).I'm grateful to have a bed to sleep in every night (it breaks my heart to think that there are people out there, that will not ever sleep in a bed, or some people don't even know what a 'bed' is.. that's just so sad).
2).I have the most wonderfulest family, my parents have always been there for me, they have never doubted me, they have always listened to what I had to say, and they love me for me. I have the best brother anyone could ask for! I am soo close to him. I thank god everyday for us being so close, being able to talk, and hug each other every night before we go to bed.. a lot of siblings hate each other, I could NEVER hate my brother!
3).I have the best pet's anyone could ask for, I have the cutest pup; Max, I have the smartest Guinea Pig; Chloe' Cupcake Monster, I have the sweetesssst Rooster and Hen; Lulu & Babi, and two cats with totally different personalities; Bianca & Feebee.
4).I have great friends. It has taken awhile to find the ones I have. I have always been known to have lots of friends, (I'm a great friend in re-turn), but it was always hard to find the ones that wouldn't stab you in a heart beat, or talk about you behind your back. The people that are true friends will love you no matter what you say, or do, as long as you don't hurt them. (And everyone has a right to their own opinion, always keep that in mind). 
5).I have a beautiful body, I always 'hated' certain parts on my body, such as my boobs (they are small), my scars on my legs, acne on my face, etc... but I have realized, I don't need boobs to be beautiful, I at least have legs that I can walk with, and I am soo happy to have a face that isn't burned, or messed up. I have a beautiful body, it might not be perfect to others, but it's perfect to me.
6). I don't know what I would do without my Sex and the City! I watch it every night before I go to bed, I always get people addicted to it, such as ex boyfriend, my girl friends, my brother's girlfriend. I just love watching all my favorite women on tv! They are all so gorgeous, and super funny.. I can relate to all of them, and they never let me down!
7). I am grateful for having a roof over my head. I pray for the people in Japan every night, and other people as well who don't have a place to call 'home'. Everyone needs that special place.
8).Boys, men, guys.. what would we do without them? We fall in love with them, we hate them, we find them sexy, we find them disgusting.. I am so grateful to have men! Favorite quote 'God made man, then realized he could do better, and made woman'.
9). I am grateful for food, I don't know what I would do without some tasty Strawberries, Mango, Kiwi's, Pickles, Soup, Bread, Spaghetti, Sushi, Couscous, Wild Rice, Fish, Chocolate, and soo much more!
10). I'm grateful to be me. I live such a beautiful life!

What are a few things your 'grateful' for?

I think we all need to do this more often; thank you for the inspiration.

I am very grateful to have such wonderful friends, family, and luck in love. The people I surround myself with make everyday magical. I am truly blessed.

This is a great post. I feel like I get so caught up in everyday life I forget all that I have to be grateful for!
