This past Sunday my minister read a beautiful poem for this holiday and one that I've been sharing with friends and family on Facebook. It sums up my sentiments today. I hope you have a spirit of gratitude in your heart no matter where in the world you live.
“A Thanksgiving Poem”
by Peter LaForge:
Perhaps I should have said it just between
The wine and grace, the wishing and the blessing.
That was a time for words, when the scene
Had just begun, before we passed the dressing.
Before the knife cut deep into the breast,
I might have paused, looked up and all around
Into the eyes of each of them. A jest
Came easier, wit tossed into the sound
And lost. Between the stuffing and the pie,
Was yet another quiet moment when
I could have told them all.
Instead I sighed And let it pass. Just once before the end
I should have cried, "Listen, before you go.
I love you. I just wanted you to know."
