What I’m Thankful for: The generic list

I’m thankful for enthusiastic second graders who remember my name,

the little pitter patter of rain on a tin roof,

picking up an old forgotten videogame,

and nail polish in multiple shades of blues.

I’m thankful for Jeonghan’s shiny hair,

my father’s dusty SLR camera,

a blue buggy that can take me anywhere,

and fun combinations of pop and opera.

For friends that place their trust in me,

for brisk mornings in Autumn,

for stolen tiny stuffed sheep,

and for happy dogs that come when you call them.

I’m thankful for my family and God,

and for oriental ramen noodles,

and even though this list is rather long,

one more portion and then we’re through.

I’m thankful for second chances,

and sneaking pieces of chocolate cake,

and now that I’m done the last thing on my list is,

to make your own, just one word is all it takes.
