road. The following verse, by Edna Jacques,
seems to voice how I feel.
Thankful For What
Not for the Mighty world 0 Lord, tonight
Nations and kingdoms in their fearful might.
Let me be glad the kettle quietly sings
Let me be thankful, just for little things.
Thankfulfor simple food and supper spread.
Thankful for shelter and a warm clean bed.
For friendly feet that gladly run
To welcome me when my work is done.
Thankful forfriends who share my work or mirth,
Glad for the warm sweet fragrance of the earth.
The golden pools of sunshine on the floor.
For love, that sheds its peace about my door.
For little friendly days that slip away
With only meals and bed and work and play.
A rocking chair and kindly firelight,
For little things, let me be glad tonight.
