Thankful Thursday

I'm joining in with Mary-Lou's 31 Days of Thankful.  This will run throughout October and we'll post the things we are thankful for every Thursday ... starting with today:
 
Oct 1st | I am thankful for the freedom and stability I have in my life.  I have been reading the recent posts on the Humans of New York Facebook page, where the author is currently photographing and telling the stories of refugees.  Their stories are horrific and I am eternally grateful that I live in a country where I will never have to experience the things they have gone through.
 
Thanks to Mary-Lou for organising this.

  1. Sounds like a fun meme; always good to be thankful! It is heartbreaking reading what people in other countries go through and are grateful for things we take for granted. It makes one really think and be grateful for what we have, like running water, freedom to do a lot of things, etc.
