I Have a Thankful Heart

As Thanksgiving approaches, I would like to share with you one of my favorite poems written by Nancy J. Carmody, published in the magazine Family Circle in November of 1999.

I am thankful that I live in a free country where I am able to pray 
for the grace to live joyfully with a thankful heart.


  1. That is a beautiful post, Paulette! loved it.♥ Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. I loved the poem. I am grateful that I do not have to arise with an alarm anymore. I can get up when I feel rested and not have to run out the door to work plus all the things in that poem.

  3. I read this to my husband and he appreciated it as much as I did. He asked that I pass it along to our kids. I'm also thankful for running errands for my mom several times a week because at 84 she is still here close by.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving Paulette. That was a lovely verse.Enjoy your long weekend.X
