This Thanksgiving

this year
fill your plate with gratitude

it doesn’t matter
what faith you are
let’s say a prayer
of thanks
receiving is easy
but it’s the giving
that blesses us

seeking to help
rather than complain
giving support
rather than walking away

maybe you have a turkey
on the table
and maybe you don’t
that isn’t what counts most

it’s the gathering
of friends
of families
a gathering
of who ever you might be
around a table
laden with love

reflecting on
each other
sharing strengths
letting weakness slide
walking away from tearful times
rejoice together this day
and the next

this is a time for contagious compassion
this is the time to spread joy and cheer
this is the time of thanks
this is the time of giving
