Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Thankful 'Attitude of Gratitude' Thanksgiving appreciation song lyrics )
THANKFUL FOR WHAT?
Copyright © 2014 - MickTerry.com
Some people just can't bitch enough:
no appreciation, constant aggravation.
Unhappy regardless what's their stuff,
they won't be satisfied.
Some others take life on the chin:
no anticipation, constant adaptation.
Knocked over, they get back up again.
They've got some strength inside:
an "attitude of gratitude" despite what's going on. *
A THANKFUL FOR WHAT? For the life that they've got,
for whatever they eat, for the shoes on their feet.
THANKFUL again for their fam'ly and friends.
No matter what they've got, they can be THANKFUL.
Street urchin surviving night-to-night:
land mine altercation brought a right arm amputation.
Told the surgeon that helped to save his life,
"It's a good thing I'm left-handed.Ē
An "attitude of gratitude" despite what's going on. *
B THANKFUL FOR WHAT? For the life that Iíve got,
for whatever I eat, for the shoes on my feet.
THANKFUL again for my famíly and friends.
No matter what Iíve got, I can be THANKFUL.
Life can hit us with a boatload of disasters
from birth to the hereafter.
Maybe what it is that matters is how we take it.
Great grandma, arthritic crippled hands,
in dire- situations thinks of Wayne Dyerís affirmation. *
Plays piano Ďtil the pain has lost command * *
and once again she smiles.
An attitude of gratitude despite whatís going on.
C THANKFUL FOR WHAT? For the life that youíve got,
for whatever you eat, for the shoes on your feet.
THANKFUL again for your famíly and friends.
No matter what youíve got, you can be THANKFUL.

* "Attitude of gratitude" - Wayne Dyer
** Based on true account of world-famous cellist, conductor & composer Pablo Casals,
who, hands severely crippled & disfigured by arthritis in his later years,
would force himself to play piano for 30 minutes every morning until his fingers were no longer disfigured.
