Giving thanks

It’s important to learn what it means to love someone.
Not like in Hugh Grant movies,
Like real Love.

Like making soup is good medicine
A hug can speak louder than words
Never go to bed angry.
Give thanks.

Giving thanks should come easy,
But it doesn’t.
Thanksgiving reminds us to be thankful,
Because there is so much to be thankful for.

I’m thankful that my husband loves me in his own way, every day.
A touch on the shoulder
A silly face
A kiss goonight.

I’m thankful for talking to my mom almost every day.
She thinks we are different,
but I see our sameness.
I see our goodness.

I’m thankful for my Dad’s “can do” attitude.
We all have self doubt
and knock ourselves down.
He tells me I can do anything.

I’m thankful that my brother tells me he loves me.
Before hanging up the phone
Or walking out the door.
It doesn’t take a lot of words to show you care.

I’m thankful for my son.
He has lit a spark in my life.
He has lit a spark in my marriage.
He has lit a spark in my family.

I’m thankful for my life.
The people.
The possibilities.
The freedom.

What are you thankful for?
