Slice of Truth

Be thankful
Dry clothes
Roof over my head
Change in pocket
Full stomach
I am just 
A paycheck from broke
I'm choosing to be thankful

In Nikki Grimes' Garvey's Choice, Manny candid words reflect his struggle with weight in "Slice of Truth". Just as I struggle with weight, I also struggle with money. A friend of mine always says, "things will get better..." and so I hold onto that hope of a brighter financial day. But in the meantime, I will choose to be thankful for what I DO have today.

  1. These are days to be thankful. Any troubles I have are small in light of knowing so many have lost so much.
