My Thanksgiving Thoughts to Share
Though the times may test our strength
Of morals, heart, and character,
And propel the road that lies ahead
Into divisiveness in all that matters,
It is now that stepping back with eyes
Which see with compassion and glory,
Will begin to peel away the labels that sting
And uncover the true value of our story.
For pushes and pulls and strains and breaks
Occur within man and the earth,
So just as this energy raises mountains to soar
So too can man’s angst drive new birth.
For beauty is abundant for us to soak in-
It has risen from disasters, it is free.
It is up to us all to hold onto hope
That our minds will soon join in unity.
For in these tumultuous and soul-searching times
The most basic of all roots we all may harvest
And give thanks to the warmth and the strength of the land
And man’s infinite potential power to do what is greatest.
Giving thanks on this day for skies that meet the land, for colors seen and unseen, for the potential in all of us to be beautiful, kind, and the best we can be, for family and friends that care, and for health to enjoy the infinite gifts we have been given.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!
