    Here are the words to the song..you can look up the song on youtube..I really like Art G.

    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 spirit sink...
    But I can't stay depressed
    When I remember how I'm blessed!
    Chorus:
    Grateful, grateful
    Truly grateful I am
    Grateful, grateful
    Truly blessed
    And duly grateful.
    In a city of strangers,
    I've 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.
    Chorus:

    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 so much 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!
    Chorus:

    So thankful for my friends on here. I want to wish everyone here a great Thanksgiving. Giving thanks for the good that we see, the good that we have, and the good that we may actually be feeling in our bodies at times, really helps us through the hard times.

    Thank you good friends, for being who you are...good, caring people. Prayers for all.
    Love, Cynthia
