Thankful

I am thankful for the sun

The earth, the moon, the sky.

 

For the days when it rains

And the days when it shines.

 

I am thankful for my heart

My hands, my breath, my mind.

 

For the days filled with love

And the days that are kind.

 

I am thankful for the hurt

The raw, deep, grieving pain.

 

And for the ache that follows

The time of forced change.

 

I am thankful for the truth

That exists where you seek it.

 

And the beauty of spirit

That’s there when you need it.

 

I am thankful for the calm

Before the storm rolls in.

 

And thankful for the storm

And the challenges that it brings.

 

I am thankful for this day

I am thankful for this hour.

 

It’s all we know for certain

And it’s filled with such power.

 

We can choose to be kind

We can choose to be free.

 

We can choose to be true

We can choose to be.

 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Much love to you all.
