Love yourself - Gratitude is the key to a happy living

By Lish D Ferns

Contributory Author for Spark Igniting Minds

In the wee hours of the morning,

As I wake up to the sound of the chirping birds that pass away;

And I step onto the flooring,

And thank the Lord for a new day.

I am grateful for the air that I breathe,

For my family, my true gold to keep;

Our love, so crimson cerise,

That grows with the years, I pray to the Lord, more and more deep.

Being grateful is what I always want to be,

To give till it hurts, especially to those in need;

To be growing in faith each day as the pages of life flip fast,

Happier, merrier, beautiful and free!
