What am I So grateful for?
My many Mistakes – For they lead me to my path.
My past Broken Hearts – Because my heart became strong enough to open more.
My Teachers – They are many and few work in schools.
My Hardships – For they strengthened me and taught me that this too will pass.
What I haven’t got – Because this keeps me alive, growing and learning.
Losses – Because I appreciate what I have and the gains from those losses.
Eternity – The knowledge that I always was, am now, and forever will BE.
Having – An inexhaustible number of things to be grateful for.
My pain – For it is wrapped in empathy and appreciation for well-being.
Opportunity – That chance to share and make a difference.
Today – My present-time experience.
Love – The greatest gift; that I can give and receive it without limit.
For you – You know why.
What are you grateful for?
