turkeys falling like gifts from the sky
as American as apple pie
giving thanks is why we celebrate this day
marking a day to get out of our own way
fatten the birds to stuff and dress
look out kitchen here comes the mess
a bountiful meal with potatoes, cranberry, and pie
the family eating like they’re going to die
now that we’re fully replete
it’s time for shopping to compete
Satire aside, I want to thank my blogging family. This blog has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. I have been blogging over 5 years with about 650 posts, 17,000 visitors, thousands of comments and most importantly, many heartfelt connections. My community has grown beyond anything I ever imagined. I don’t think I’m a great writer, but I do care and share from the heart. I’ve learned a lot about myself and how good it feels to help lift others up. Despite very hard times personally, I’ve persisted in weekly posting, reading and commenting. My blogging commitment has helped me grow in my capacity for persistence, compassion, and patience. This journey has greatly enriched me and my life. I hope you find value in being part of this community as we explore creativity, compassion, ideas and tools for living better lives.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
I am very grateful for my readers, friends, and travel mates for this journey called life that we share via our blogging.
I hope you have friends and family to share the bounty of Thanksgiving. Some years when I didn’t have family plans, I’ve served meals at local shelters and churches. I feel good sharing and helping others, which is a good lesson for me. May we appreciate what we have, fill our hearts with love and share our bounty. #TogetherWeRise
Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings to you and yours!
