Poetic Thursday: Gratitude Attitude

Today, our Christmas week Poetic Thursday post with our friends Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats. We love participating in this each week, and are thankful to Pam for hosting.

Here’s our photo inspiration:

And here’s my poem:

Gratitude Attitude

It’s Christmastime and very clear
that it’s time for a little lesson here.

Let’s learn all about gratitude,
with a slight adjustment in attitude.

Children don’t know this from the start:
that thankfulness comes straight from the heart.

A gift isn’t judged by size or amount;
it’s GIVEN to you, and that’s what counts.

When we open a gift, we say thank you and smile,
even if it isn’t exactly our style.

This lesson, when learned, is so uplifting,
and then….. comes the gentle art of regifting.

Merry Christmas everyone!!
