Food in the belly

Roof overhead

Someone to love

Someone who loves back

Meaningful work

Good health

Funds for fun

Joyful heart

    Interesting “coincidence.” I am writing a poem with the same general notion and this pops up. Are they in the air and we just use something like a dreamcatcher to bring them home?

    • lol. Thanks

      You have walked a hard road, I know. I am honoured that you take the time to visit here while you’re journeying.

      I am quite stingy with my kisses, though. Don’t get your hopes up. 😉

    Very nice, Shawn. Reminiscent of the vocal prayer we have right before our Thanksgiving Lunch/Dinner. We have sooo much for which to be thankful. Thanks for reminding us all.


  5. I love the simplicity of this poem, as well as the underlying message: “Be thankful for your blessings!” 😉
