Thankful

Hi guys! 

So it’s a few hours it’ll the new year and some of us are super excited while some aren’t as stoked as others. 

Some look at 2017 in all its glory and reminisce the happy memories. 

Others look at the failures and the ‘what could have beens’. 

But I want to encourage everyone that in spite of the current situation, be thankful. 

If at all there is nothing else,be thankful that you’re alive to witness another splendid year to come. 

I want to share this poem I came across today and hope that it speaks to you as it did me ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thankful for this life I live

And for my God above

Thankful for this time I have

To share with those I love

 

Thankful that I have my health

And the wealth that I may need

Thankful that I have a job

And loved ones next to me

 

Thankful for the friends I’ve made

Who stand faithful by my side

Thankful for the lessons learned

That now guide me through my life

 

Thankful that I have a house

A place that I call home

Thankful for my family

And the love felt from my son

 

Thankful for this land I love

And for those who fight for me

Thankful for all who gave their life

For this land that we call free

 

Thankful for this life I live

And for my God above

Thankful for this time I have

To share with those I love

 

Thankful
