Today, I stop, take notice,
And thank God for,
The gift of being AWARE.
Simply being conscious…
Of my hands that can write, touch, carry and hold,
My eyes that can see beauty, read, and connect with others,
My nose that allows me to breath in life…
My feet which take me painlessly where I need to be,
My ears that hear beautiful music to brighten my day,
My voice which can speak my truth, express love, and pray…
For more gratitude.
So, whenever I’m fearful, frustrated, sad, or angry,
I choose gratitude,
Life’s natural elixir,
And remedy for much unneeded, unnecessary, unwelcome pain.
The abilities I have are gifts,
Not a given.
Today, I will be consciously grateful,
Especially so, for the one most precious gift,
