For being lost.
From "A Note to the Reader" from "The Way of Chuang Tzu" by Thomas Merton:-

There is an affirmation of the world that is nothing but ruin and loss. There is a renunciation of the world that finds and saves man in his own home, which is God’s world. In any event, the “way” of Chuang Tzu is mysterious because it is so simple that it can get along without being a way at all. Least of all is it a “way out.” Chuang Tzu would have agreed with St. John of the Cross, that you enter upon this kind of way when you leave all ways and, in some sense, get lost.

I'm grateful that I think there is a God and that God may love me. Other than that, I don't know what to be grateful for.

Well, a friend suggested I be grateful that I'm not homeless and that she is my friend. I guess that's a reasonable thing to be grateful for considering the plight of many.

I'm so grateful that I have remembered Shoegaze. Now I have a whole ocean of soothing, dreamy music to explore.

I am grateful because we don't have war in Europe!
Yes. I'm grateful of that too. I would think WW2 was enough war to last Europe a millennium.

I'm grateful I haven't killed myself yet, considering all the loneliness I've endured in life. Or at least I think I am. Not sure if there will ever be a light at the end of this tunnel. Maybe I should have offed myself a long time ago.

I'm grateful for a warm home. Just thinking this while listening to the wind and rain outside, it's wild!
