Thanks Given

My thanks is given 
not to what I have,
but to what I don't.

I don't have;
bad health,
regrets,
hate,
sadness,
or fear.

I am truly thankful for all the things I don't have.

    There are times when we are so focus on giving thanks for what we have, oftentimes, we forge to give thanks for the things we don't have and don't really need. Nicely penned.
