Presence For Thanksgiving

In the midst of preparation
While the quiet before the storm
Rest over you like a warm blanket Thanksgiving
Be present in thankfulness

As the food begins to cook
And the flavors of the season
Brush in like a summer breeze
Be present in thankfulness

When loved ones arrive
Bringing their hearts and hopes
Worn like an old favorite shirt
Be present in thankfulness

With blessings given and received
That spread over all you love
Like a first snowfall silently falling
Be present in thankfulness

Cast off the hurry and worry
Open yourself to be loved
Like a great oak reaches to the sky
Be present in thankfulness

Happy Thanksgiving,
