I’m grateful for people in my life
Who’ve shared their joys and secrets told,
For the happiness they’ve given me
Are fond memories that’ll never grow old.
I’m grateful for my family ties
And the support that never seems to end;
No matter what mistakes I’ve made
They’ve always been there to pick me up again.
I’m grateful when I see a smile
Upon one of my grandchildren’s face;
For there is no bliss quite so dear
Than a caring grandmother’s loving embrace.
I’m grateful for the ability to rebound
From whatever life to me has thrown
And for the determination to succeed
Even when my future is vastly unknown.
