Thanksgiving 2014

Grab a pen and some paper because it’s time to make a list

Not for groceries, to-do’s, or a wish for Christmas

But a list titled THANK YOU: all caps and underlined.

I’ll make one with you…it’s gratitude time!

Okay, are you ready? Let’s start off like this—

This year I’m grateful for…(ellipsis)

I’m grateful for family, a bond thicker than water

I’m grateful for the parents who call me their daughter.

I’m grateful for work that feels more like play

Though I’m still very grateful to have the day off today.

I’m grateful for laughter so hard it brings tears

And each and every moment I’m reminded to feel.

I’m grateful for food, every last bite

Even if my pants feel a little too tight.

I’m grateful for fear and for pain

Because they push me to make every much-needed change.

I’m grateful for the people who make every day bright

and stars that bring magic to every night.

But mostly I’m grateful for right now and this list

that could go on forever if only I wouldn’t miss

the opportunity to tell each and every one of you here

How much I love you and look forward to this time of year

So thank you for listening, now finish your lists

And have a happy Thanksgiving

with much love and bliss.
