Little Things – A Poem
I decided this morning that it was time to get back to the heart of Thankful Thursday and write a poem about the little things I am thankful for.
I’m thankful for
the little things
I often take for granted
A soft warm bed
to sleep safely at night
The smell of coffee brewing
as I open my eyes each morn
A long hot shower
to start each new day
Music of all varieties
to suit my every mood
Granola and nuts with almond milk
to energize me on my way
Flowers blooming spring to fall
offering beauty to my eyes
Family and friends who help
bear the burdens of life
Access to the Word of God
in multiple translations
A means through prayer
to speak with my sweet Jesus
Freedom to enjoy the life
God has blessed me with
I know that freedom
is not a little thing
but makes these little things
and infinitely more
ever oh so sweet
7/26/13 Update: Decided to link this poem at dVerse Poets Pub where the Thursday prompt was to write list poetry. If you like this list, head over and see the examples Victoria gave and some poetry of the dVerse crowd.
I like the variety of little things that you are grateful for. It makes me happy and grateful, also.
Thanks for causing me to reread this poem and be reminded of the little things I’m thankful for.
Yes, it is indeed the little things that count.
Life is beautiful
This is lovely and I will say “ditto” to each stanza. The list poem is a good way to consider and express those things that make us grateful.
I think it is the little things that truly are the most important in life; and I enjoyed seeing your thankful list, as I am drinking MY cup of coffee right now!
all the little blessings that do tend to add up
and we dont take time to think about often enough…
I love that you are radically in love with Christ and are a good ambassador for Him! Like your blog.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. Peace, Linda
Thank you for helping me give thanks for all the little things and big things today! God bless you as you live with an always grateful heart!
