Coach Ken Donaldson on Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

So I’m givin’ thanks, oh yes I am
And I’m writing it now with my paper and pen

Gotta be thankful for the way I’m livin’
Gotta be grateful for this Thansgiving

For many great people who just support me
For the place I live and just bein’ free

For the air I breathe and the land I walk
For just being able to sing, shout and talk

And gotta be thankful for my creative spirit
As well as morning dove, oh I love to hear it

Gotta be grateful for the work I do
For my clients and my colleagues…I love them too

And how ‘bout the sunrise and the great sunsets
This life is great, but it gets better yet

Grateful to be able to go to new places
And to meet new people and see new faces

And surely I’m grateful for all my possessions
And having good friends who’ll hear my confessions

And I’m even thankful for the losses and the grief
‘Cause when I let go, I always get relief

(And I’m even grateful for all my past romantic love
‘Cause today I do know, no longer must I shove)

But most of all what I’m thankful for
Is this gracious  life that just gives more and more

I shout to the heavens and today I sing, “Thanks!!”
I’m investing now in gratitude, you can take that to the bank

Marry YourSelf First!
