#52 - What are you grateful for?

By, Antuken

I am grateful for my health. Even if I get mouth sores (singaw) sometimes, and it makes it difficult to eat, at least I’m healthy (although a little underweight) enough to enjoy everything that life has to offer.

I am grateful for having inherited my dad’s genes of (I think) having a fast metabolism. Even if I eat a lot, I don’t get fat easily. ;) (although my tummy is getting bigger lately — and not due to a baby!)

I am grateful for not having a sweet tooth. Otherwise, I might be prone to get diabetes. It sorta runs in the family (my lolo died from complications from this).

I am grateful for my parents. For guiding me into the person that I am now. For giving me freedom as I was growing up. I never experienced curfews or stuff like that. They always allowed me to go wherever and whenever I wanted to, as long as they know where it is, who I am with, how am I getting there, who will take me home, etc.

I am grateful for being blessed with a sweet, thoughtful, wonderful and wacky family and having close relations with my relatives. Weekends spent at home is really a lot of fun and full of hilarious moments.

I am grateful for our yaya — lolita, who takes care of everything at home, my dad, my blind brother and my mom. She really is a part of the family.

I am grateful for my very makulet and really smart pamangkins — they always make me smile.

I am grateful for having such wonderful friends. Even if we don’t get to see each other as often as I’d like, they’re always there for me.

I am grateful for my mr. antuken. For letting me be who and what I wanna be. For understanding my moods. For always being there. For always making me laugh. Starting a life with him will not be all rosy, I’m sure. But then again, I never expected it to be

I am grateful for my job. It makes me insane sometimes, but at least I have one. There are a lot of people out there who always have jobs that aren’t permanent (contractual).

I am grateful for having a choice. Others do not.

I still have a ton of things to be grateful for, but putting ‘em all here would make this post really, really long. ;)
