Life in all its glory
Its trials, its challenges,
Its joys, and its triumphs-
All come to me in a collage of memories.
I give thanks to all the people in my life,
Whether they attributed to my joy, or
Caused me heartache for they all came
With a lesson to teach me.
I am thankful for the lessons they brought.
I am thankful for the lessons learned.
Am grateful for the memories
for they remind me
Of who I used to be,
of how far I’ve traveled
To be the person that I am and
How far I have yet to go.
