Ode to Thanksgiving

Temperatures cooling

Hearts warming

Family converging

Kitchen cooking

Television parading

Table praying, chattering, complimenting, delightfully consuming

Dishes washing

Football watching

Paper reading

Naps calling

Holidays commercialized

This one less corrupted

A reminder to

Hold each other close

Remember our advantages

And those for whom they remain a distant hope

All of this

Hold it in your heart

Share it with your hands

Thank God for his grace

And enjoy his gifts with the wonder of a child
