Gratitude is a virtue as well as an emotion,
Driven by thankfulness and sacred devotion.
It gives us good health and mental stability,
The power of prayer and vulnerability.
A blessing of hope during challenging times,
A reminder of the gifts of many lifetimes.
Developing wisdom, patience, and humility,
Gratitude instills a peaceful tranquility.
We all see gratitude from a different view,
Each of us unique, it is our "social glue".
Uniting all of our higher energies as one,
A grateful heart helps & supports everyone.
Whether it is expressed in a private journal,
Or in spoken Word, a vibration eternal,
It is a language understood so universal.
The attitude of gratitude is where its at,
Recognizing a blessing from this or that.
This moment of feeling or daily practice,
Restoring balance with one's inner axis.
Focused on what's working and what feels good,
Aligning the mind-body-spirit brotherhood.
Gratitude brings healing and elevation,
Focusing on the blessings is a celebration.
This season of thankfulness & appreciation,
Is an opportunity to switch the entire narration.
Viewing the planet, society, and all of creation,
As the building blocks to a Loving foundation.
No matter if we share so many different views.
The space and time where our oneness renews,
Is with gratitude, the "mother of all virtues".
