Thanksgiving

 I try to make each moment
A thankful one.

I have so much,
To be thankful for.

For things so great,
And so small.

Each breath, each thought,
Each friend, and family member,

And on and on.
The turkey has been cut,
Table set,

Prayers said,
Food graciously shared,

Songs sung,
Stories shared,

Games played,
And importantly

Thanksgiving re-enacted.

  1. It seems so obvious, so why do we not live each moment thankfully? Is it because we forget? Or do we think that other things like finding fault, being right or feeling sorry for ourselves are more helpful?

    I’m sure it’s not that. Or could it be that we don’t really know how to be thankful?
