I Am Thankful For You
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
This poem sums up what my heart longed to say to my SparkFriends and my at-home friends (many of whom sparkle, as well, precious gems that they are) as Thanksgiving approaches (well, and every day). Though my Canadian friends have already celebrated Thanksgiving, I am thankful for you, as well, all year through. You share life with me on so many levels, in so many arenas, and I am so grateful that you give so generously of yourselves, me and that you open your arms and hearts and minds and faith to me continually. Thank you for being my friends. Thank you for letting me be a friend to you.
I’m Thankful for You
Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
let’s be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
I’m thankful for you.
