Gratefulness

8 Jul

Now I am grateful for the rainy days as well as the bright ones
Because I know the rain brings growth

So I guess Im grateful for the not so good days and for the great ones
Because during the good times I may forget to thank the Lord for what he has brought me through

Im grateful for the boy and girl who occupy all my time
They’ve helped me to see the beauty in one moment

Im grateful for all the struggles
Without those I wouldn’t be here

I’m grateful for my heart which led me down some dark roads
If I hadn’t been there I would have thought I missed the world

Im grateful no one told me the things I wish they would have
Now I can tell my children from experience

    Yes! The rain brings growth — I’m grateful for that too.

    Beautifully said. Thank you.
    You can’t see me nodding my head in agreement, or saying, “EXACTLY!!”, but I am.
    It’s a good reminder for me to thank the Lord for both the good and the bad, because it’s the combination of the both of them which has brought me to where I am (and who I am) today.

    Sharing things from experience seems to have the greatest impact.

    love the twist and it is so true that those things are the balance and really let us experience so much of this life.
