Thanksgiving Poem

Thanksgiving 2010


This past year has been a bit unnerving. Here's to giving thanks, sincere and deserving:


Thanks for my family. Thanks for my friends. Thanks for stability and ends meeting ends.


Thanks for my health. Thanks for my mind. Thanks for second chances, time after time.


Thanks for my shelter. Thanks for my bed. Thanks for education, for becoming well-read.


Thanks for experiences. Thanks for adventure. Thanks for my freedom, away from brute censure.


Thanks for humanity. Thanks for community. Thanks for talent, skill and ability.


Thanks for the future. Thanks for hope. Thanks for the reasons we have not to mope.


Most of all, thanks for resilience and my feeling near it. Thanks for the steady, iron-willed human spirit.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
