The reasons I am blessed, are easy to explain…

Life has been a little hard, more than once or twice.
Seems people have forgotten, it’s easy to be nice.
With work and bills etc. getting everybody stressed.
 You may think it’s amazing, but I am truly blessed.
I’ve never had much money,  but I’ve always found a way.
I’ve never been good looking, but  I think that I’m O.K.
The reasons I am  blessed, are  easy to explain.
I’m blessed because the sun shines, I’m blessed because the rain.
The air I breath. the food I eat.  The earth beneath my toes.
All of these are blessings. The oak tree and the rose.
The friends that I have made, and those I’ve yet to greet.
The love of my wife Lisa. So beautiful and sweet.
I did not know the reason God had blessed me with such joys .
But the greatest gift was still to come, God graced us with our boys.
Nicolas with eyes so bright, and Sean so sweet when he’s at rest.
God has given me my family, by his grace I’m truly blessed.

    It is good to see remembered blessings as so many only focus on what they do not have in their life. We all need a reminder of what we do have not what is on the other side of the fence that we do not have.
    When people remember the blessings they are given things look brighter. To bad not everyone can see the blessings when they are staring them in the face.

    Well done!!
