I Am Thankful
by Erin Kilmer

I am thankful

for rain that is not sleet
for mud that is not covered in snow
for chill in the air that is not a freeze

I am thankful

for messes made by God-given blessings
for ornery laughter from a baby girl
for a cup of coffee that grows cold while I am distracted

I am thankful

for friends willing to speak a hard word
for a husband who doesn’t always spoil me
for children that know honesty in all its brutal truth

I am thankful

for the sweet in the bitter
for the silver in the clouds
for the good worked in all things

I am thankful
