Gratitude Rhyme for a Monday


I am linking up to Laurel Reagan's Gratitude Link for the week on her Alphabet Salad Blog. Laurel's Gratitude List Why not add your list, too?

I think in these troubled times, it's even more important to be grateful for everything we have as you just never know what tomorrow will bring.


I am grateful for longer days and moments of sun
I am grateful when I get my blog posts done,
I’m grateful for friends both near and far
Thanks to you all wherever you are!

I’m grateful for my furry friends with paws
They still love me in spite of my flaws
I’m grateful that I saw the cardinals on the snow
I wish they’d come more often to say hello,


I’m grateful for winter, a time to ponder
A time to reflect, a time to wonder
I’m grateful to be alive for another day
There isn’t much more that I can say!

    1. You know how much I like stringing words together in a silly rhyme, Laurel! Too much Dr. Seuss and Mother Goose as a kid, perhaps!

    I loved this idea so I joined in too.

    1. It's a good idea to make these lists, isn't it? We need to stop and take stock of all we have to be grateful for.
