Savoring Thanksgiving

Hands clasped around the table; heads bowed for blessing,
Family, friends, neighbors, and the like,
Young and not-so-young trade glances and warm hugs.

Thoughts linger over those afar and those gone-on,
The holiday, an excuse to ruminate on deeper things,
It’s the people in our lives that stir these emotions.

Gathering around the food we enjoy is simply the setting,
A moment to eat, connect, give thanks,
Grateful to God for each one.
