Blessed



What makes a person always want more Never satisfied with what they possess Always trying to get ahead of the pack When what counts is just to be blessed Blessed with the love of family and friends And a life filled with good times and joy To know they'll be there to comfort you When your spirits need to be buoyed Blessed in the knowledge no matter what You can count on their loyal support It's the greatest feeling you can ever imagine Knowing they'll never come up short What makes a person always want more When what counts is just to be blessed With the undying love of those you hold dear And their sweet and loving caress Happy New Year Everyone! © Jack Ellison 2012

    I love it... But watch out... my imagination is trying to surface... It always takes me away somewhere unusual... LOL... Don't worry I'll be back by dinner time... For hugs and kisses from family and animals... They like hearing my stories...All except my son...He runs... I shouldn't do that to him...But it's sooo much fun. Happy New Year to you and yours...
