The Gift Of Life

Did you ever give thanks for the gift of your life?
As a child, a teenager, a mother or wife?
Did the pride in the eyes of your mother or son
Make you glad you'd accomplished whatever you'd done?

Remember the summers you relaxed by the pool?
Did your family all come when you finished high school?
Have tears of defeat made you alter your way?
Was triumph so sweet when you carried the day?
