We remember to be thankfully for one day a year,
often we forget to be thankfully throughout the year.
This year really is no different I will admit,
however, I’m reminded of the things I have forgotten.
I’ve taken for granted of my security,
forgetting of those who live in fear for their safety and dignity.
I’ve taken for granted of my basic needs,
forgetting those who worked hard to create them for me.
I’ve taken for granted of my freedom,
forgetting of those who fought the good fight.
I’ve taken for granted of those of showed me care and kindness,
forgetting those moments when I feel forgotten.
This year, I remember those who live in fear,
being thankful for my security and praying for theirs.
This year I remember those who created my goodies,
being thankful for their hard work for my needs and wants.
This year I remember those before me,
being thankful for their hard work for my freedom today.
This year I remember those who showed me kindness,
being thankful that I am never forgotten.
This year I remember these things and remember to be thankful every day.
