I am re-blogging this poem by our lovely Patty.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends who celebrate it. I think it should happen here in the UK. So many forget to be thankful at times for what they DO have .. and focus only on what they DON’T have (me included)
Well said Patty


A day of thanks
Grateful am I
For all that I have
I cannot deny.

My fate, my choices
Could have been better
But,  looking around
It all comes together.

So many struggle
Have pain and such sorrow
No reason to try
No hope for tomorrow.

So far out of touch
Out of balance, offset
They give me a reason
To never forget.

To give thanks
For the cards that I have been dealt
To know love and emotions
All I have felt.

They cry and they wail
They wonder why
Their lives are so dark
It brings tears to my eyes.

The grass isn’t greener
But, a tangle of weeds
It’s cold and it’s frozen
Nothing there… that I need.
