A Mother's Poem of Thanksgiving


Grateful Heart - A Mother’s Poem of Thanksgiving

by Janet Autherine James

For my children, I give thanks.

When you were born, the universe smiled on me.

Your love is unconditional; my love is unconditional.

You are joy. You are hope. You are home.

My walking heartbeats. 

Every day, you stand taller in height and heart.

When you smile, I smile. 

I smile because of your kind spirit

Your pure heart. Your innocence.

Your never ending search for fun.

Continue to grow into your greatness.

Always hopeful.  Alway kind. 

Always grateful. Always loving.

No pomp, circumstance or occasion needed.

Every day with you is Thanksgiving Day.
