attitude of gratitude

it’s so easy to get lost in dismay

an attitude of gratitude goes a long, long way


When i wake up, i thank my maker

When i pour my cup, i thank my “coffee-maker”

When i go to work, i thank the pay-paychecker

When i get mad, at my teenager

I thank my mother, now I’m the care-taker

when you smile, upon seeing my face

I’m grateful for the day-changer

When you help me up,

Im thankful for grace

When i say thank you, and kiss your face

the attitude of gratitude

goes along

long way

One thought on “attitude of gratitude

  1. Love the subject matter on this one. I’ve thought about gratitude a lot lately.

    This line was charming and made me smile:
    “When i pour my cup, i thank my ‘coffee-maker’ ”

    Also the lines where you thank your mother now that you have your own child, that is so real and human and really great!
