I have a mother ninety-three
Who, everyday, still teaches me-be thankful!
Yes, surely thankfulness is rare,
For nowdays it seems most care
Is focused on the person ME,
So not too many people see-be thankful!
Feed the hungry, meet a need
For some poor soul astray
Be thankful to forego a deed
That just might change their day!
It never hurts to be so kind
And strive to have a Christlike mind
For showing forth this attribute
You manifest the Spirit's fruit
Don't ever let a day go by,
That you don't hesitate to try
To show your world the reason why
D. S. Mullis
