There's so much to be thankful for!

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

A Spark friend posted a link in her blog today to this song on YouTube. The lyrics are so powerful, I wanted to share them.


Some days we forget to look around us
Some days we can't see the joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see

It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for

Look beyond ourselves, there's so much sorrow
It's way too late to say, “I'll cry tomorrow”
Each of us must find our truth
We're so long overdue

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can't see

It's up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There's so much to be thankful for

Even with our differences
There is a place we're all connected
Each of us can find each others love

So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can't see

It's up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much more
There's so much to be thankful for

    every morning when i awaken i'm thankful that i made it through the night..we don't know what the day will bring....so, before i get out of bed, i say a prayer of thanksgiving to GOD and put myself in HIS hands..some days are good, some are bad, i accept each new day as a gift.

    Beautiful!!
    I am thankful for many things; life itself, my two kitties, my sisters, my friends here on Spark, having a job, my health and my Mom who will be 93 in May! Can you believe that? Thanks for a reflective poem...sometimes I forget my many blessings.

    Yes, it is really easy to get so caught up in ourselves that we forget to look outward, so easy to dwell on the negative so exclusively that we miss all the good things. I am thankful for so much today ~ for family who are all in reasonably good health; for my job; for my little house; for an automobile that passed inspection (and hasn't been recalled yet!); for my computer, which allows me to connect with so many friends (and to play the, ahem, occasional computer game); for my cat, who is warm and nice to snuggle with; for my next-door neighbor and her humorous emails; for the fact that the Olympics ladies' figure skating is on TV tonight; that for today my bills are paid...so many, many things!

    Practice gratitude. It is life-changing!

    Today, I am focusing still on what is wrong with me. So, close to visiting the inpatient end of treatment that I am unclear on my focus. This wasn't my first reminder of gratitude today. I wish I could get my head untwisted. I don't really know what to do anymore.

    Thanks for the reminder. Sometimes we are so busy focusing on what is wrong with our lives, we forget to be thankful for what is right. emoticon
