This time of year we all give thanks
For blessings small and big,
I’m thankful for my family,
Good food and my work gig.
But things don’t always get the love,
I feel that they deserved,
Those things that keep me happy
On those days I come unnerved.
So instead of taking out my angst
By working out too much,
I’m once again presenting you
With rhyming crap and such.
I’m thankful plain Greek yogurt has
a presence in my fridge,
As even if it costs too much,
I’m thankful for the job I have,
Although some days it sucks,
Writing this and fixing that
For other lazy…people.
I’m thankful for my pots and pans,
although I rarely “cook.”
But chickpeas, rice and veggies here
is all it really took.
I’m thankful for my morning tea,
that helps to get things moving,
(Although no one will say it,
a good movement’s mood improving.)
I’m thankful grocery clerks nearby,
All know me by my face.
As apparently I stop there
More than any other place.
I’m thankful that somebody makes
a frozen pizza right,
Along with pumpkin and tahini oats,
(I could eat this every night.)
And I might. Don’t judge.
I’m thankful for the bloggers that
I’ve met throughout the years,
We shared some food, some thoughts, some jokes
and also shared some tears.
Cancer’s probably touched us all
the breadth of it is sad,
in memory of Deb’s dad.
I pretend to smoke asparagus
and look like a cartoon,
but was thankful for the chance to help
and hope you order soon!
(Seriously. Go check out her post and all the Blogger Babes—they are fabulous, especially Smoothie Girl herself.)
I’m also glad I took time,
To try and be amusing.
Instead of fighting mental wars,
I sometimes end up losing.
But I’m also thankful there are days
When honesty means more.
You all help me face the struggles that
I normally ignore.
(That’s as sappy as I’ll ever be,
let’s end this thing with more of “me.”)
All in all…
I’m thankful that I have the chance
To blog here any day.
Cause even if I’m full of shit,
You read it anyway.
And for that, I am truly thankful.
What are you thankful for?
