This little thank-you note

is an expression of joy,

for which I thank you.

And I thank you for the rainbow

known as hope. I even thank you

for the bad years that increase

my gratitude for the good years,

and for teaching me to bear

the unbearable-to forgive

those who knew not what they did,

what can I do but thank you?

And for an interesting life–

for love, redemptive love,

thank you, thank you, thank you!

God you know my name.

Thinking of and thanking God for all of you today. May our day be a reminder, of all that we have to be grateful for.
