Grateful - even if you can't hear it!

Just a quick shout out to everyone who let me know that my audio clip wasn't working! I'm sorry about that - I guess I'm not as technologically savvy as I wanted to believe!

So for everyone who didn't get to hear Art Garfunkel singing, here are the lyrics. Imagine a solo piano and Art's voice sweetly singing this amazing song and know it goes from me to you!

Grateful

I've got a roof over my head
I've got a warm place to sleep
Some nights I lie awake counting gifts
Instead of counting sheep

I've got a heart that can hold love
I've got a mind that can think
There may be times when I lose the light
And let my spirits sink
But I can't stay depressed
When I remember how I'm blessed

Grateful, grateful
Truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful
Truly blessed
And duly grateful

In a city of strangers
I got a family of friends
No matter what rocks and brambles fill the way
I know that they will stay until the end

I feel a hand holding my hand
It's not a hand you can see
But on the road to the promised land
This hand will shepherd me
Through delight and despair
Holding tight and always there

Grateful, grateful
Truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful
Truly blessed
And duly grateful

It's not that I don't want a lot
Or hope for more, or dream of more
But giving thanks for what I've got
Makes me happier than keeping score

In a world that can bring pain
I will still take each chance
For I believe that whatever the terrain
Our feet can learn to dance
Whatever stone life may sling
We can moan or we can sing

Grateful, grateful
Truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful
Truly blessed
And duly grateful

Truly blessed
And duly grateful.

I spent some time and energy thinking about what you mentioned Saturday about finding something mundane that we take for granted every day and concentrating on being grateful for all the efforts made by many so we can enjoy it.
You know me well enough to understand that at first I was skeptical of the whole idea, but after thinking about it, I've decided it's a worthwhile exercise, and I'm going to try it each day this week.
I came to the conclusion that I need to be grateful for all that I have, because nothing I have, nothing I take for granted, is ordinary. That's the thought I will carry with me this week.
You will get a report.
