A Poem of Thanks

I am thankful for all the tears my eyes have shed for they show I have compassion

I am thankful for my scars as they simply remind me I've lived

I am thankful for the ability to laugh at myself because it reminds me how much I've grown

I am thankful for the fine lines beginning to form on my face for they represent experience and wisdom gained

I am thankful for having known great sorrow for it only made my faith grow stronger

I am thankful for an imperfect, mended soul for it represents my courage to love 

I am thankful for all the times I've tried and failed as they have taught me resilience 

I am thankful for my fears, insecurities and worries for they remind me to turn to God

I am thankful for a grateful heart, the one that reminds me to turn to that same God each and every day and to finish each prayer with this...

Thank you so very much 
for all that I have...
for all that you have given me
 and for all that I am..


We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
