Gratitude Attitude

From where I sit there are complaints

Of lack, short-falls, life failed.

I feel the pity for myself

For no one else would care.

I cry the tears and lick my wounds

Feel justified, I moan,

Alone, poor me, I dwell depressed.

No joy lives in my heart.

Rejoice, my spirit screams within

Take note of all there is!

Behold, rise up and see the light

For gifts abound around!

Enjoy the gifts each day bestows

Surprises are in store

Be open spirit to receive

The wonders of this world

Change attitude with gratitude

Your heart will overflow

You’ll feel the love, support surround

And know you’re not alone

  1. HI. Your words are deep from your soul and I can feel and understand so close!!! Take you from far into my arms and hold you. Hope you are strong enough to see the lights coming to hold you and show you: life goes on.

    Please tell me, whats about selling the house and changing into southern temperatures.

    Take care. Erika


  2. I sold my house in Connecticut and bought a home in Williamsburg, VA. By Thanksgiving I will be heading South to more moderate temperatures. I know life goes on and I am ready to write a new chapter. Thank you for your hug.
