Thankful

I’m…

Thankful for my faith;

                It gets me through when times are tough.

Thankful for my family;

                They’re their when times get rough.

I’m…

Thankful for my wife

                Who’s there for me through thick and thin.

Thankful for accepting friends

                Who take me as I am.

I’m…

Thankful for my good health;

                Nothing matters without that.

Thankful for our fur babies;

                Our house just needs three cats.

I’m…

Thankful for the home I have;

                It fits me to a tee.

Thankful for the job I had;

                None other would suit me.

I’m…

Thankful for so many things;

                The list goes on and on.

Narrowing the list to one

                I know just can’t be done.

So, even when I’m feeling down

                Joy is everywhere.

I need to open up my eyes;

                It will be right there.

During this season of thanks, what are you thankful for?

    I’m thankful for each slice . . .
    Of life,
    Of friendship
    And feelings of gratitude
    For all I’ve met throughout this trip!
