Celebrate and Be Thankful

The following is by Liz Winston, a guest to Writers in the Grove Monday workshop. She wrote the following and shared it with us with permission to publish based upon the 4th of July prompt. Liz is a singer specializing in jazz and gospel in Seattle and also works retail during the day.

Another day
Full of fun,
Family, friends,
food, and faith.

A time to celebrate and
Be thankful for a chance to
Choose to make a positive
Difference in life.

Whether I face emotional,
Physical or mentally challenged,
Being thankful for past
And present progress
Things that have molded me into
The person you see today.

Being thankful
For another year to
Celebrate life whether
I feel ready or not.

Boom, bang, pop, sizzle,
Oooh, awwww, wow, oooh
As the lights are bright in
the sky tonight.
