  1. Be Grateful
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    Be grateful for
    the kindly friends that walk along your way;
    Be grateful for
    the skies of blue that smile from day to day;
    Be grateful for
    the health you own, the work you find to do,
    For round about you
    there are men less fortunate than you.

    Be grateful for
    the growing trees, the roses soon to bloom,
    The tenderness of kindly hearts
    that shared your days of gloom;

    Be grateful for
    the morning dew,
    the grass beneath your feet,
    The soft caresses of your babes and all their laughter sweet.

    Acquire the grateful habit, learn to see how blest you are,
    How much there is to gladden life, how little life to mar!
    And what if rain shall fall today and you with grief are sad;
    Be grateful that you can recall the joys that you have had.

  3. Tell Him So
    Poet: Unknown

    If you hear a kind word spoken
    Of some worthy soul you know,
    It may fill his heart with sunshine
    If you only tell him so.

    If a deed, however humble,
    Helps you on your way to go,
    Seek the one whose hand has helped you,
    Seek him out and tell him so!

    If your heart is touched and tender
    Toward a person, lost and low,
    It might help him to do better
    If you'd only tell him so!

  5. Remember
    Poet: Patience Strong

    Remember the blind -
    The sightless ones, whose eyes can never see -
    The beauty of the lovely earth -
    The glory of a tree.

    Remember the lame, on crutches bent,
    For they can never know -
    The thrill of movement - running, free -
    With strong swift limbs aglow.

    Remember the deaf, the lonely deaf,
    For they have never heard -
    The wonder of a human voice -
    The rapture of a bird.

    Remember the dumb -
    With speechless lips -
    In silence set apart -
    Who never can express in words the longings of the heart.

    And so if we grow bored and dull
    As down life's path we drift...
    Remember - and be thankful for
    Each good and perfect gift.

  7. A Life Full of Gratitude
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2020

    May my life be full of gratitude
    May it be shown in my attitude
    By the way that I act
    And with any and all contacts.

    Let my appreciation show
    Expressing it quickly not too slow
    For those who have helped me along
    Even when I was stubborn and wrong.

    May the kindness that was shown to me
    Be kindness that I return so easy
    May I always lend a hand
    To a child, woman, or man.

    You see a life of gratitude is one
    That makes you appreciate all that is done.
    You count your blessings every day
    From the time you are young until you are gray.



  8. Your happiness in life depends a lot on your attitude and how you view the world around you. You may also be inspired by our collection of poems about life

  9. Hymn Of Gratitude
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

    God of the hills and verdant plains,
    I bless thy ruling hand:
    The drifting snows and gentle rains
    Are sent by thy command.

    The opening spring is decked by thee
    With each delightful flower;
    And every leaf and bud I see
    Bears impress of thy power.

    The ripening summer's burning sun;
    The winter's piercing cold;
    The changing seasons as they run -
    Thy wisdom, Lord, unfold.

    Beside the hill, the purling brook,
    Glad Nature's fond retreat,
    With gratitude to Thee I look,
    And songs of joy repeat.

    For lot so blest, my voice I raise,
    Almighty God, to thee!
    Thou needest not an angel's praise;
    Much less such praise from me.

    But I will bless thy bounteous hand
    For all the gifts bestowed:
    Before my heart could understand,
    Ten thousand thanks I owed.

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Every day when I wake,
    I count my blessings
    For each friend, family
    And life's lessons.

    For my health,
    My home and employment.
    Generosity that is
    So highly sent.

    Happiness in life
    Amidst the strife;
    Understanding of what
    Helps others thrive.

    What a gift to learn
    And experience
    For all of these,
    I have such gratitude.

  13. Attitude of Gratitude
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    The beauty of life shines through my window pane
    As I take the time to think and reflect
    From breathtaking sunsets to calming ocean waves
    I'm grateful and show my respect.

    A first snowfall or a wonderful sunrise
    Daily moments that we take for granted
    Yet these scenes are what make us all alive
    And we should be thankful for where we are planted.

    Life is beautiful, never give up on it
    Choose to appreciate its every delight
    Gratefulness will open many doors of bliss
    Let an attitude of gratitude give you new insight.

  15. Appreciate Little Things
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    On sunny days, and early days of spring
    Appreciate life's little things -
    The joyous laughter of a child,
    A bird singing in the wild.

    A brand new day full of hope,
    Cascading rays help me cope.
    My heart is warm, my soul elated,
    I'm grateful for what God created.

  17. Embrace Life
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Today I wake to birds singing with glee,
    A new day, and fresh possibilities.

    The sun is shining brightly on this morn,
    I am grateful for the little things that adorn.

    A child's laughter is a gift so divine,
    The warm hug of a friend most kind.

    This fullness of joy is the greatest pleasure,
    It's in these small moments we find lasting treasure.

    Oh the beauty of being alive and well,
    Embrace life with open arms and thankfulness, we shall!

  19. Gratitude
    Poet: Jennie Mast

    God's creatures, o'er his vast creation,
    Regardless of their situation,
    Wealthy or of lower station,
    Owe a debt of gratitude.

    Grateful every heart should be
    For this land of liberty;
    Lovely woods with templed hills,
    Leafy grove, and flowery dells.

    O ye saints, while life prolong,
    Praise the Lord in prayer and song.
    Fainting though thy heart may be,
    A song of praise will strengthen thee.

    When dark clouds are looming near,
    Whisper o'er a grateful prayer,
    And while urging this request,
    Bring him homage for the last.

  21. Go Show Your Gratitude
    Poet: David V. Bush

    Someone along life's rocky road
    Gave you a helping hand,
    And as you toiled beneath your load,
    Proved he could understand.
    Since then a host of years extend;
    Successful thoughts intrude;
    But have you thanked your faithful friend?
    Go show your gratitude!

    Some teacher his devotion lent
    That you might wiser grow.
    And ever watched with kind intent
    Your footsteps, sure but slow;
    Today you've won, while he has not,
    But he your fortune made;
    So share with him your happy lot,
    And thank him for his aid.

    Your mother sits at home today
    Grown wrinkled with the years,
    Yet once she smoothed life's troubled way,
    And calmed your boyish fears.
    Go to her now, ere it be late.
    And gratefully confess
    That most of all she built your fate
    With care and tenderness!
