“Grateful Every Day”

Poem of the Day, Thursday, November 23, 2023

“Grateful Every Day”

I am thankful and grateful
for many things, not just today
but every day, especially
today for Thanksgiving.

For some reason, we express gratitude
the most during the month of November,
when gratitude should be a daily thing.

For me, I am grateful for:
Jesus Christ, my Savior and Redeemer.
My wonderful wife who loves me
everything single day.
My two daughters, both miracles,
who have become incredible women.
For my grandchildren—
all four, all talented, all amazing!
My two sons-in-law
who are good fathers and husbands.
My brothers and sisters.

My ability to read and write.
The many things we have been able to do
in this life, from Idaho to Montana
to Wyoming to the Dominican Republic,
the isles of the Caribbean
to southern California to Utah.

The many friends and friendships
throughout the world
who have enhanced our lives.
A nice home and delightful neighbors.

Being free in the promised land.
The blessing as a child of God,
a child of the covenant,
and a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Being grateful is a choice I wish
to make every day, every day, every day.
For that—and so many other things—
I am grateful to all those
who have made my life
happy and joyful and gratifying
and wonderfully blessed!
