~ Grateful Heart ~

I am grateful for family and friends
For rainbows, those magical gifts
I am grateful for time that she spends
Sweet daughter, my heart she uplifts

I am grateful that we have a home
We don't own the house and that's okay
Though seldom (from it) do I roam
Birds and sunshine find me each day

I am grateful for health and for life
For the happiness shooting stars bring
I am grateful for struggle and strife
I am grateful for everything

I am grateful for music and laughter
For the sound of kids splashing in rain
I am grateful for all that came after
After joy and, yes, after the pain

I am grateful for words that God gives me
I am grateful for all He bestows
That our world -- God willing -- outlives me
And that He will keep making rainbows

Faerie's Heartsongs
T. R. Cardinet 2007

At this time of year, when family and friends
gather to celebrate our many blessings, let us
not forget to bless those of us less fortunate.
God be with you and bless you this holiday
season and all year through.
