 What's to be Thankful for...-by Teresa Marie

What’s to be thankful for you ask?
To make a list is quite a task:
I’m thankful for my life
to be my lover’s wife
I’m thankful for my husband
who is my best friend
I’m thankful for the children
God blessed me with back when
I’m thankful for my great joys
my grandchildren, the girl and boys
I’m thankful for my father and mother
for my sister and for each brother
I’m thankful for my adopted ones
all the daughters and the sons
I’m thankful for every friend
into my life God did send
I’m thankful for legs to walk
and a mouth with which to talk
I’m thankful for ears to hear
and heart that holds no fear
I’m thankful for eyes to see
all the blessings God’s given me
And this list could go on
unto the stars and beyond
But let it suffice to say
I thank God for every day!
