    The days have been plenty
    The years…long

    I thank YOU.

    For the heartache and pain
    I went through
    During the divorce that I caused
    {Yes…it was my fault}

    I thank YOU.

    For afflictions and hard times
    Headaches…of all kind
    The tears and the pain
    Again and again…and again
    And for the happiness of love
    As I rest in YOUR COMPASSIONATE ARMS

    I thank YOU.

    For the agony of living
    Every opportunity for giving
    And for waking me
    Each day
    Allowing me to say what I say
    In whatever way I choose to say

    I thank YOU.

    Without you
    I would not have been.
    .
    .
    .
    Would never have gotten married
    Would never have had three beautiful boys
    That I raised into wonderful men
    {with YOUR help}
    Would never have known sickness
    …that I might better appreciate good health
    Would never have lived these forty-five years
    Of turmoil…joy…sad times…laughter…
    Tears…pain…and time and again of love and happiness
    Constantly refreshed in the knowledge that
    YOU love me

    I thank YOU.

    I do not know if your familiar with the fine art styling of Bev Doolitle but she hides images in her work that are only found when searched deeply and this piece is much like that and I will read it again.
