Reasons to be cheerful #r2bc

Although I'm still quite ill
And my depression isn't gone
I've many reasons to be cheerful
This is list is surprisingly long

I'm thankful for my husband
For all the support he gives
Even when we're arguing
Because I'm tricky to live with

I'm thankful for my daughter
For understanding about me
Although it can curtail her
She stays pretty happy

I'm thankful for my friends
Who keep walking alongside
They must wish I'd pull it together
Or go away and hide

I'm thankful for the sunshine
Bringing warmth to us today
For the newly growing garden
And the fun of outside play

I'm thankful for God's company
Through all life's ups and downs
Knowing I'm never really alone
Helps me smile instead of frown

You have a talent there. Marketable I am sure if you wanted to take that line. Reminiscent of Helen Steiner Rice etc.
Well done you and hope the sunshine is helping you

I hope the poem made you feel better - yes, those are all wonderful reasons to smile...especially your beautiful and happy daughter...but it is okay to feel sad, too, sometimes.
