On Being Grateful...
One More Time
© Lee Wise All rights reserved
I'm thankful for...
People loving people when they don't need to or would rather
not... but they do so anyway.
The ability to see colors and the on-going ability to see things I
never realized or comprehended previously.
Fighting that ends -- whether it's between countries, in
marriages, or between little friends or big kids who should
no better in the first place.
The beauty, simplicity and healing power of laughs of all kinds...
Louder than you'd like ones,
Barely above the sound threshold ones,
And ones that make your stomach ache despite any feeble
attempts to stop the process.
Dreams that create ways to help, heal, motivate, inspire,
and conceive dreamers who repeat the process.
Teachers who give more than they receive and know more than
they share because they they'd rather build up than tear down, see
eyes brighten with every new discovery, and design for others
ways to enjoy and improve the one life they've been given.
Soldiers who defend for all the right reasons instead of
maiming and destroying for every wrong one in the book.
Moms who love their kids, kids who love their moms and
dads who love them both.
Butterfly Kisses that mean so much more than the song ever could
because of lyrics played during the ever changing rhythms of daily
Those who really do help little old ladies across the street, and little
old ladies and gentlemen who preserve the art of caring by
living and loving in ways that leave legacies of hope for each of
their watching worlds.
Dogs at the neighbors that don't bark and barking neighbors who
don't live near me.
Cars that run,
Empty bathrooms during times of ultimate crisis,
Spyware that works,
And cats that quickly leave my back door.
Minds that remember what they should while forgetting what
is brought to mind because they love people more than they do
grudges that don't matter anyway.
Addicts who win,
And athletes who know and show the difference between winning
at life and simply taking a win to the next game.
In short, I'm grateful for my life
And the God who entrusted me with the same.
