Poem “I’m Thankful…”

I’m Thankful…

…for the loud noises outside my window,
because it means I am alive.

…for coffee at the beginning of the day,
because it keeps me awake.

…for my laptop at home,
because it means I can share my poetry.

…for the money that I make
because it means I can pay my mortgage

…for the family in my life,
because I love them.

…for the snow to shovel.
because it means I have a home.

…for all the complaining I hear about the government,
because it means that I have freedom of speech.

…for my expensive heating bill,
because it means I am warm at night.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

    Every morning I wake up and say, thank you! I am thankful for each new day that I am alive, for my children and for my dog, Honey. Simple things bring the greatest joy. Thank you for your poem, Anthony. Happy Thanksgiving.
