This summer’s been really hot. Both of my places (the one I live at alone in the city I go to school in, and the one where my parents live) do not have air conditioning. I am thankful for the small breezes that come through the windows in the evening. I am thankful for the cool windy moments when walking to the grocery store.

I’m trying really hard to find these small things to be thankful for. Who would have thought that the daily one-word prompt would get me thinking about what I’m thankful for?

Sometimes it feels like I’m just surviving but the wind in the evening can have the power to make me feel like I’m living.
