Things to be Thankful for This Season

November 25, 2016

To close this month of thanksgiving off, I just wanted to post a poem on the things to be thankful for as we enter into the Christmas season. A lot of people are Black Friday shopping today, so I think this is the perfect opportunity to remind everyone that there are things to be thankful for even in the hardest of times.things to be thankful for this season

 

Things to be Thankful for This Season

The season of Christmas

Can be overshadowed by

The rush of what to buy

For everyone on your list.

But there is more to it

Than presents under the tree.

Be thankful and grateful

For your family and friends,

Your moms, dads, grandparents

For everyone on your list.

Some things to be thankful

For this season are a roof

Over your head and a

Bed so comfortable at night.

As you hustle to shop

For the dearest in your life,

Don’t forget how blessed you

Are, and maybe stop and think

On all that you have to be

Thankful for this season.
