Be Thankful

You woke up this morning
To see the bright sunshine
You had food on your table
Was in your right mind
Be thankful

Had shoes on your feet
Clothes on your back
Money in your pocket
Enough for a good snack
Be thankful

Family and friends
A good pal too
Some live far away
Others near to you
Be thankful

A stroll in the park
Some trips to the store
Who could ever ask
For anything more
Be thankful

The day is far spent
About to come to an end
To see the sunset
Just around the bend
Be thankful

    A lovely elaboration with nice flow of words. Yes in our short mortal life we should be thankful. Otherwise life is so uncertain that I may not get a chance to give my thanks even.

    Yes, we should be thankful in all we do. We should rejoice when going about our daily living. Sing praises to His Holy Name, the Name above all names.
