For all these things,

I give thanks.

going to bed early
cozy blankets and soft jammies
words that comfort my heart
I give thanks.

a week of sunshine
even if the rain gauges get packed up
before they get filled
I give thanks.

kiddos who work hard
even when everything is hard
and learning to use polite tones,
I give thanks.

the sweet ripple of out-loud prayer
and young and old together-liking it!-
trying new ideas
I give thanks.

Bread for the hungry
Water for the thirsty
He is satisfaction for the longing, and
I give thanks.

for the understanding
that words don’t quite
cut it
I give thanks.
