So Much To Be Thankful for

In my life so wonderful
I have many, many blessings 
To share with you, a few this day
Though many I am missing.

My family...and most of all...
My husband.
My home - so full of life
My garden - lush and vibrant
My job - my livelihood
My city - thriving and dynamic
Health - it allows me to enjoy the rest!
Opportunities for growth (they are everywhere)
My ability for self expression
My desire for knowledge
The safety I enjoy,
Living in my bountiful country
The food in my kitchen
The clothes in my closet
My flaws - they make me unique and interesting
My attributes - they balance out the flaws 
And finally, most of all,
Thankful for
Who I am and the life I live...
A great blessing indeed!
