HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY FRIENDS IN THE USA
On this Thanksgiving Sunday
I gaze out to the east
at another lovely sunrise,
to my eyes and soul, a feast.
I’d like the peace and quiet
I’m experiencing right now
to be felt worldwide in others
as we all connect somehow.
I’m grateful I’m alive and well
in my spirit and my soul.
I can overcome aches and pains
that make me feel less than whole.
Today we’ll cook a turkey
to share with family and a friend.
It will be a fun and happy time
as our personalities blend.
Some of us have challenges
that are difficult to face,
but we’ll be guided through them
with loving support and Grace.
As greens change to yellow and red
and daylight succumbs more to night,
I appreciate all that autumn provides,
scenery becomes a delight.
Sunrise into a striped cloudy sky,
outlining trees with pink, gold and blue,
made me take some photographs
of that spectacular view.
I enjoy early morning quiet time
before busyness starts once more.
Time to energize and prioritize,
so I enjoy tasks, not make them a chore.
We’re starting a long weekend,
it’s Canadian Thanksgiving.
Stay safe and travel well my friends.
Be kind, loving and forgiving.
Be grateful for all around you—
people, places and things.
Don’t forget to say “Thank you”
and return the smile that brings.
