How many things can you think of in the sense of being grateful for having them or experiencing them? How many things do we take for granted and should not have done so? Being grateful is, to a degree, being thankful also, at the same time. To live life at its fullest, and appreciate it at the same time can be hard to express, but I look in the mirror and I am Grateful for so many, many, many things…………
To be able to smell the flowers
see the trees, watch the birds fly,
and hear the honey bees buzz by
To attain the age of seventy, whereas
others dear have not; still be able
to walk and not have gone to pot
To have gone white water rafting
seen the Mammoth Cave, have fun at
Disneyworld and go to the Grand Canyon
and just stand and rave
To be called an ex-jarhead vet
and to have been an auxi-cop too,
and President of ASHRAE, plus have
sat on church council as President too,
plus have owned a thing called a ferret as a pet
To believe in the God. as one to follow
and a family I’m proud of – a gem;
To be grateful for the things I have
and thankful that I have them.
