After reading this poem many years later, I have no idea what was going in my high school mind when writing this. Overall, I’m just grateful that I found this and that we all have that gratitude for the many blessings (big or small) we have in life. Don’t take it for granted!

What personally spoke to you after read this poem I wrote above? What are you grateful for?

Good News Thankful
