What am I thankful for today
That I was able to work and play.
That I could see where others are blind
That I could think with my own mind.
I saw tears and I saw pain
But I saw sun, no clouds, no rain.
I was able to use my feet
As others had to sit in their seat.
I used my hands to pull the weeds
I touched the ground and planted seeds.
I thank you Lord for watching over me
I thank you Lord for tranquility.
The tears were spotty here and there
Thank you for the time that we could share.
I ask you God for peace to flow
Through Al’s mind and body til he does go.
I thank you God for my Cali cat
Who brings me love while sitting in my lap.
I ask for silence as we do sleep
For no bad dreams for him to keep.
I am thankful Lord for all you do
For watching over Al and me too.
Life would be so hard today
If you were not guiding all the way.
I will give thanks to the one above
For forgiving my sin, and continued love.

I’ve been trying to jot down one thing each day I was grateful for. I’m finding you start with the big stuff then find you really have a lot of little things to be grateful for each day.
i am in the spot where i try hard to find the little things to be thankful for anymore. i am so sorry, but last nights pain caused by my child’s mouth has really hurt me and did me in
