In our family we have a tradition of writing poems on Thanksgiving, and sharing them. This is my poem this year!
Gratitude in the midst of turmoil,
Humility while the storm rages on,
Thanksgiving for the tempest raging,
Carrying me along.
Faith in the Atonement of my Savior,
Acting in the ways that He would,
Gives me the strength to continue-
Longer than I thought I could.
Confidence in Heavenly Father,
Leads me to sink to my knees,
Blessing the name of my Savior,
I, whom am, the "least of these."
Looking backwards and forwards,
Blessings I see all around me,
Even in deep tribulation,
Service, hope, and charity.
