I absolutely love this song! I think it is one of the cutest songs ever written. Today as I pondered blessings I decided to make a list of some of mine. There is no way one poem could hold every sweet blessing I have known, this is only a tiny glimpse into my heart. Happy Thanksgiving!
A list of sweet blessings I thought to write,
Not all are here but each one shines bright!
For my beloved Savior, my hope and way,
For angels and grace sent each day.
For Father above who guides me home,
For lessons learned and how I've grown.
For babies and toddlers, for every child,
For meeting him and the way he smiled.
For swimming and lockers, to see you grin,
For the beauty of love I hold within.
For pizza and games I play with you,
For holding you close and all we knew.
For cookies and smiles, to eat and sing,
For a day at the park, to play and swing.
For you pointing out the toe nail moon,
For our shadow dance to our favorite tune.
For the gift of scriptures to guide my feet,
For a pencil and an empty sheet.
For the flag flying, red, white and blue,
For the precious gift of meeting you.
For popsicle fun and kangaroo zoo,
For the sweetest kiss and the color blue.
For making pies and feeling cheer,
For pictures given so sweet and dear.
For a day at the temple and heavens power,
For the strength to stand another hour.
For the roar of thunder and lightening’s strike,
For the day we shared, our perfect hike.
For your sweet voice saying "outside",
For sitting on the porch with you by my side.
For a rescue of love that changed my heart,
For a chance to make a brand new start.
For laughing with you at a funny joke,
For the truth and light each time you spoke.
For British Bake Off and smiles galore,
For having you and wanting more.
For music and dreams to lift my soul,
For the power to reach a worthy goal.
For a day of bingo and candy bars,
For looking up at heavens stars.
For the Holy Ghost who comforts me,
For a lighted path so clear to see.
For dirt and sprinklers shared with you,
For friends who are forgiving, kind and true.
For sparkling water and hot cocoa,
For watching as you learn and grow.
For eating at Subway, it was fun,
For seeing colors from the sun.
For my dance in the rain, it was divine,
For the joy of knowing you are mine.
For rainbows streaking through the sky,
For birds of beauty, to watch them fly.
For the miracle of being new,
For reaching out and finding you.
For the greatest of all my dearest friend,
For love and joy that will never end.
For the sacred gift of Gethsemane,
For you my King reaching out to me.
For your power and love that saw me through,
For all you helped me find and do.
