They help with my problems, no matter what.
They are there for me when I need them.

They fill my heart.

I am grateful for music because it comforts me
when I’m in a bad mood.
It helps me cope with my emotions.

because others don’t have what I have.
I am thankful for going to Mexico
because some people can’t visit.
One reason I love this planet is because
I get to see the people I care about
and live a life that I have on this earth.
Each season I get to reflect on myself
and do something different
and enjoy it to the fullest until the next one.
But even with all this gratitude,
it’s always important to be grateful
and the person you have become.
