Gratitude Poem by Jeanie Manchester
What a beautiful poem to help to put everything into perspective.
“I am grateful for my limits
that teach me patience and pace
I am grateful for challenge, defeat, and loss
They teach me hope is not a light at the end of the dark tunnel It’s the ember burning within me that I forgot to fan
I am grateful to my teachers
for introducing me to myself
I am grateful for my past
that has delivered me to my present
I am grateful for all I have found and all I have lost Both remind me I can live with and without
I am grateful for silence and for laughter And for my ears that can hear both
I am grateful to my heart
that beats and breaks and heals
I am grateful for the fullness of my life For the brief, heartbreaking, heartwarming fullness of life”.
