A Time to Be Thankful
Thanksgiving is a time of year
To give thanks to those both far and near.
Be it family, friends, husband, or wife
Or someone else who impacts your life.
Impacting life could be good or bad
Like a deadbeat mom or dad.
Impactful lives help us grow
And at times may even make us glow.
Glowing from a glimmer of hope
In an effort to help us grow and cope.
Help us grow by knowing what we desire
Before that glimmer begins to expire.
When that desire begins to dim
A person’s heart could resent her or him.
The resentment could be from the “what-if’s”
Although others look at you as stuck up and stiff.
So, as you sit together with others
Be kind and thankful to your sisters and brothers.
Sisters and brothers need not be related
For in God’s eyes, we are all equally created.
