Gratitude by Jaeson Ma

Lyrics to

I’m thankful, thankful for life
Thankful for my health, thankful for my family and my friends
Thankful for the good things in life and thankful even for the bad
Because everything in this life, is a gift and I don’t take it for grand
I don’t understand it all, but I am thankful because everything I’ve been given
Has made me the person I am today and I might not be what I wanna be
But I thank god, I’m not where I use to be
I am thankful for who I am and I don’t want to be anyone else, but my self
I can’t change my circumstances, but I change my attitude, to one of gratitude

Thank you for every day you give me, thank you for every opportunity
Cause you lend strength when I’m weak and for that I want you to know
That I’m thankful, that I’m thankful
And it’s all because of you, so this is my gratitude to show you
That I’m thankful

Verse 2

Thankful for my mother for raising me up all these years, as a single mom
Thankful for my father, who wasn’t perfect, but I know he tried
Thankful for my brothers and sisters
Who believed in me when no one else would
I’m thankful for my education, thankful for my clothes on my back
Thankful for the food that I eat, I’m thankful that I am alive and breathing
Because you are the reason, I am thankful
I’m thankful for my friends
Who loved me, when I didn’t deserve it
And thankful for listening
Because not everyone in this world is given a fair chance
And for those without a voice I speak for you, I’ve got nothing

Verse 3

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
Courage, to change the things I can, and the wisdom, to know the difference
I am thankful, thankful that you lifted me up, when I was down
I am thankful that you were there for me, when I was sick
I thank you that you comforted me, when I was lonely
That when everyone left me, you were still thereā€ž, carrying me through
I am thankful for every relationship given
For no person is a failure, if that person has friends
True success is not what achieve it’s being faithful to your values and conviction
I love you, you love me. That is success, and success is having GRATITUDE
