  5. Many Things To Be Thankful For
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    Today you have many things to be thankful for,
    A new family coming your way ready to love and adore.

    A new soon to be husband in your midst,
    Ready to be there to coexist.

    A love so strong it must be real,
    A wedding to come to seal the deal.

    A day about you and the love you share,
    Confessing your love while everyone stares.

    A honeymoon to spend several days in the sun,
    With alone time to spare and some much needed fun.

    The option to start a family of your own,
    No longer by yourself or eating all alone.

    Today you have many things to be thankful for,
    And as the years go on, there will be much, much more.



  6. Things To Be Thankful For
    Poet: John Paul Bocock


    For eyes whose vision can pierce the blue,
    Where the sparrowhawk hangs like a mote in view
    . For ears in which Nature's harmonies ring
    As sweet as the music that sounds for a king.

    For hands that grapple the nearest task,
    And, tearing from Duty's face the mask
    Selfishness set there long ago,
    Show us the smile that we all would know.

    For feet that are firm and swift and strong,
    Tho' the way be rough and the race be long.
    For sinews sturdy to stand the strain
    Of a struggle with weariness and pain.

    For a heart whose chords are attuned to love
    The brute below and the God above,
    That yearns to infancy's frightened cry
    And the moan of the beggar passing by.

    For Life, Hope's nurse, and for Hope herself;
    For a modest share of the great world's pelf;
    For friendship's grasp and a hearthstone bright
    With the spark that kindles the darkest night.



  7. Be Thankful For It All
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    Life is filled with many unknowns,
    Some great surprises and some that make us bawl.
    But hereís the thing that most donít know,
    You have to be thankful for it all.

    There was a time that we were granted,
    The free will to make our own choice.
    This is seen as the great sacrifice,
    And many continue to rejoice.

    But donít let this sacrifice be confused,
    You are not the only one getting this will.
    Not everyone in this world will make good choices,
    And their mayhem can over spill.

    We cannot blame God for evils ways,
    He gave us what we wanted.
    What we can do is pray for comfort and guidance,
    He will help you deal with the unwanted.

    If we only had good and never the bad,
    How would we know it is good?
    Life would be without mystery and challenges,
    It would be a life of falsehood.

    So yes we should rejoice for the sacrifice made,
    It was a selfless act we can never fully understand.
    It was made to give us a full and happy life,
    Sometimes happiness needs to be unplanned.

    Each day when you kneel down to say your prays,
    Be thankful for the good and the bad.
    For us to understand how good the good can be,
    Sometimes we have to feel sad.

    Life is a balancing act,
    We see this big and small.
    We learn you canít have one without the other,
    You have to be thankful for it all.
