Before I open up my mouth and try to speak

You know my dreams
Must be listening when I’m talking in my sleep

I hope you know
I love having you around me don’t you know

That I’m thankful for the blessing
And the lessons that I’ve learned w/you by my side

That I’m thankful so thankful for the love
That you keep bringing in my life, in my life

Thankful so thankful

Don’t you know that I’m thankful for the moment
When I’m down you always know how to make me smile

'thankful' by kelly clarkson

Dear Father in heaven,
Thank you so much for the many, many blessings you have given me. Thank you for a daddy who stays up with me when I'm sick the Thanksgiving Eve and for a mommy who stays home on Thanksgiving Day when I'm still sick. Thank you for a brother who buys me Slurpees and gives me hugs to cheer me up. And thank you for my dear, dear friends who write me odes and send me songs and pictures and prayers. I don't believe I can ever thank God enough for you all.
