                                                      Everyday is very special
                                                      in my life it seems to be
                                                      rising in the morning
                                                      is a blessing just for me

                                                      Each day that I am given
                                                      with my health and even more
                                                      is more than I was promised
                                                      the day I lived before

                                                      My wonderful, loving family
                                                      surrounds me each day
                                                      God's great treasured gift
                                                      sent from heaven my way

                                                      A home filled with happiness
                                                      and joy abides within
                                                      sewn with the thread of love
                                                      on that I can depend

                                                      When I'm in the valley
                                                       my friends are always there
                                                       to lift me up and carry me
                                                       because they truly care

                                                      The beauty of a sunrise
                                                      sparkles on the morning dew
                                                      awakens my soul
                                                      and warms me through and through

                                                      A picture-perfect blessing
                                                      of a night time sky
                                                      with the stars shining brightly
                                                      is a blessing from on high

                                                      My little flower garden
                                                      means so much to me
                                                      I planted it there
                                                      God grew it for me

                                                      Even the little birds
                                                      singing in the trees
                                                      warms my heart
                                                      with their sweet melodies

                                                      The days of my youth
                                                      are no longer here
                                                      I'm more thankful for each blessing
                                                      now that older days are here

                                                      So every morning when I awake
                                                      and my feet hit the floor
                                                      I thank God so very kindly
                                                      for giving me one more
