Each of us is needful during our lives but unique with those desires. Always give thanks.
Footprints of Thanks



Gratitude is as unique as a snowflake.
Suns shines, grains grow, bread to make.
A tattered blanket found to stop a cold wind.
Wallet appears, a few bucks to help a friend.

Fortune for the poet, simple paper and pen.
A homeless person, soap for stained skin.
Crippled with disease, one lends a helping hand.
Stranger wanders, discovers a welcome land.

A broken hearted lover, needs a hug not a talk.
In a scorched desert, water trickles under rocks.
Lonely white swan, finds a lifetime mate.
A car breaks down, cop stops, you aren’t late.

Furnace quits in a ice storm, a lottery ticket comes in.
A kidney fails, “I’ll give mine” offers your twin.
Lump appears, tests done, it’s a benign cyst.
Lost in the dark woods, a light is seen through mist.

Some wishes are whispers, others shout.
Life has this wondrous way of working out.
A person dying in pain, breath ceases, peace.
The madonna in labor, cry of life, a brand new face.
