“Gratitude” by P.C.A.W. (from Grit Uplifted group @ Central Library–Week 2: Theme)

I must approach life with an attitude of gratitude. After all, I am lucky to still be alive. I can walk and talk about my accident in 1984. Listen up people! Wearing a helmet riding a bicycle is a smart thing to do.
Go ahead and think I’m strange, but I am thankful I no longer have to watch my parents suffer here on earth. The have entered a higher plain where illness and pain do not reside.
We live in a country where we are free to choose how we will behave. Too bad some think it’s okay to steal and murder, or anything else deemed illegal by society. Do you know that your rights stop where they interfere with my rights? If only cigarette smoke would get the message and stay out of air space.
I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from life and my own mistakes.
Take time to enjoy nature. Some people think seagulls are nasty, dirty birds. Have you ever watched a flock take flight in unison? The choreography that went into the dance of leaving the ground, pirouetting into the sky, and not crashing into each other is awe inspiring. This is a true statement whether this is seen in the city or at the beach.
As Tim McGraw sings in “Live Like You Were Dying”: Be thankful for what you have because what you want may not be what you need.
