Grateful That ...

Grateful that,

I got over my cold.

Grateful that,

Like doing what I’m told.

Grateful that,

I come up with ideas.

Grateful that,

I didn’t break into tears.

Grateful that,

I’m not too old.

Grateful that,

I’ve got a hand to hold.

Grateful that,

I like my job.

Grateful that,

I don’t act like a snob.

Grateful that,

I could write this all down.

Grateful that,

These few words, I found.

    A fine grateful write WBL. I'm gonna sing - oh no!: 'Count your blessings, count them one by one......' Probably learn it from about age 3 at Sunday School!

    • WriteBeLight

      Yes. I wake up every morning and remind myself how grateful I am in my life. Everyone should as it is the best way to start your day. Thank you very much. I am grateful for your comment :)

        Will you be grateful if I DON'T sing it?! heehee. Will you know if it's me, or two cats fighting?!

        You use my favourite word all the way through this lovely verse WBL - - am grateful that you shared it here.

            And I am grateful too, WBL, that you did find these few excellent words!
            And you are so right, we have to be grateful not only for the big things, but also for all the little things in life!

            • WriteBeLight

              Yes Fred. I could not agree more. Grateful I can read your comment :)

                Lovely poem - enjoyed reading this and can relate to what you say. We should be grateful for the small things in each day. 😊

                • WriteBeLight

                  Correct sue.evans. I feel very fortunate and very grateful everyday. I wish the same for everyone, although I know that is not reality. So, thanks so much for your comment!

                      Good write WBL, we should all be grateful for the things that we have and that many take for granted.

                      • WriteBeLight

                        Very wise words, Goldfinch. I appreciate it. Thanks!
