Gratitude

heart-haiku

Dear God,

Please forgive me when I complain

about the small matters that bother me,

for I am far more blest than I realize.

I have good health while others are ailing.

I have a job while many others have lost theirs.

I have plenty to eat while others go hungry.

I have a warm house while others are homeless.

I have family and friends while others are alone and forgotten.

I may not have everything I want,

but I have everything I need.

Thank you.

    Gratitude posts are my favorite kind! What a marvelous photograph and lovely prayer … filled with perfect reminders for us all! Your image would be perfect for Shadow Shot Sunday at Hey Harriet.
    Hugs and blessings,
