Grateful or Really Grateful

I know we have all had one of those days
When we are grateful that all is well 
But, we know that we should show it more
How grateful we are we should be willing to tell
We look around for all we can see 
That brings a grateful thought to mind 
It shouldn’t take very long at all 
For that thought of gratefulness to find 
It can be flowers blooming along the way 
It can be children just playing along a street
It can be a rainbow shining through a cloud 
All its colors shining so neat 
It can be the sun shining 
After we have had days of rain 
It can be that you are not hurting 
After you have had days and days of pain 
It can be the smell of fresh cut grass 
Or the sight of a garden weed free 
There are many things that God shows to us 
But what is attractive to you may not be to me 
But I can tell you one thing now 
That we can all be grateful for 
A drive by the local funeral home 
Seeing a totally empty parking lot, not one single car
