Each day we wake ready for another
Often we think of all to be done
Stresses and challenges may come
But at times we focus on just one.
If it feels like it may consume us
We can reflect on what we possess
Health, home, friends and our life
We could have it worse, I guess.
Maybe it isn’t always easy to see
It could be we find little to say
But considering all that we have
Be thankful that you have this day.
Problems won’t go completely away
Nor will the connections we feel
But with love, patience and time
Focus on problems that are real.
