Red, Gilbert & Daisy (from L to R)
I’m thankful for the life I’ve got
The life You’ve given me
For food and health and water-
Streaming forth with purity.
I’m thankful for the folk I know
And ones I’ve yet to meet
Those gentle souls who pass me by
As I stroll down the street.
I’m thankful for my one true love
My heart he holds with care
And trust I him, with all my thoughts
To him, my soul’s laid bare.
I’m thankful for the mom and dad
Who opened up my eyes
With invaluable lessons
Now, I’m grown, I realize.
I’m thankful for the creature-cats
Who populate our home
They snuggle up and keep us warm
Who needs a dog to come?
I’m thankful for the grace of God
Who put me on this earth
And blesses me continually
With mercies and with mirth.
