My mom broke her hip while on vacation in Italy. She is now back in Canada. I wrote this poem to express my thanks to God.
A GRATEFUL HEART
Words cannot fully express my thoughts,
For the many blessings God has brought.
Throughout all my life, God has been good,
Even when I haven’t done as I should.
Mother, away in Italy, did slip,
And in one moment, she broke her hip.
We were in Canada far away,
But we knew that here we could all pray.
Today, I thank my Father above,
For His abundant mercy and love.
In our time of stress, He has heard us.
He has inclined His ear toward us.
Mom was in a good hospital in Rome.
Now, she’s in Canada, near her home.
God has brought her back safely to us.
Now, over her, we can make a fuss.
Many people who I’ll never see,
Have treated my Mom carefully.
The operation was a success.
We know that we have surely been blessed.
