I was thankful to hang out with a good friend of mine (2 days ago so I guess it's not today). I hadn't seen him since November so it was nice to hang out again.

My best friend.

Today, I am very grateful for my family being alive and healthy. The second storey of our immediate neighbour's house (that we share a wall with) caught on fire 3 hours ago. They all managed to get out and nobody was severely hurt, thank God. The fire department put the blaze out within half an hour. But I dread to think what might have happened had it been a few hours later and most people had gone to bed. Our house still smells of smoke.
The gift of life. The opportunity to wake up to a new day with new blessings.

God's grace. Could've been worse, good to hear they're safe.

Glad to read that no one got hurt, phew. Things like that do jolt you up a good amount of gratefulness sometimes.
Being loved.

Indeed it does, LadyF. And it definitely could have been worse mslonely, we were all out on the street when one of the neighbours came running out with a child who was unconscious, presumably from smoke inhalation. :/ Still not sure as to what caused the fire in the first place. Very glad for the quick arrival and action of the fire and rescue services.
My good/happy memories and the chance to make more.
