Woman standing in a field with her arms raised, giving thanks.

Today I ...

Today I smiled and all at once
things didn't look so bad.
I decided to share with someone else
a portion of what I had.

Today I sang a little song
and felt my heart grow light.
I walked a mile and watched the sky
with not a cloud in sight.

Today I worked with what I had
and didn't wish for any more.
And what had seemed to be weeds
were flowers at my door.

Today I loved a little more
and I complained a little less.
When I reflected on my blessings
I escaped my weariness.

Today I saw beauty around me
and had joyful times to share.
So I decided I to enjoy the good things
and somehow I had less cares.
