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.

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!

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.

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 to 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.
