Gratitude is about being appreciative of all our experiences, whether significant or small. You can find reasons for it in all things, no matter how unpleasant they may seem. It is in the everyday things we see and do.
The little pet that licks your face
Overwhelms you with his grace
The little child, who always teases,
Never annoys, but always pleases
Small sandflies that nip your toes
Sandcastles the wind never blows
Stew on the stove, that slowly boils,
Hallmark of mom’s sweat and toil
The rusty coathanger, on which lies
Tired dad’s old coat and tie
The sights and smells, of every day
For each of them, we thank and pray.
