Be thankful

I’d take a boring day anytime.
I may complain at times.
Today the same as yesterday.
I thank God for ordinary days.

I walk the streets without fear.
The sidewalks filled with others.
Going about our daily errands.
I thank God for freedom.

The absence of gun shots.
The drums of war silent.
Children with happy faces; laughing.
I thank God for peace.

It is Sunday. I often work.
A rest day could fall on a weekday.
While others spend time with family,
I thank God for work.

A drop of happiness spreads.
It shines bright; it smiles.
A day I savour to the full.
I thank God for such blessings.
