This week is one of the most amazing! A time to celebrate being thankful! Make this Thanksgiving a special story of your time by celebrating with those you love. Cherish every second and every moment you can share. And remember every day of the year is really Thanksgiving-because we are allowed to love others and ourselves!
Celebration in the Middle
Old stories of love told over tea.
Young faces of the heart
Smile across the plane.
Older faces of the body
Grin with pride.
The youngest ones
Insecure with their plans,
Yet feeling so safe with these spirits.
The old ones gathering
For the celebration with the young ones.
Hugs and friends with good food
Represent not just having a meal together,
But love for each heart seated and each heart serving.
The spirit of the room warms the soul.
The conversations open the heart.
With the busy life
They each work through complications to get there.
And when there they never want the evening to end,
Because they cherish each second, each laugh,
Each story, each thought, and each touch.
The older ones never dreamed they would be there,
And the younger ones wondered why they were going.
Both upon arriving
Knew exactly why they were to be in this place at this time.
It was not fate but destiny.
The food is rich like the conversation.
The dessert is shared as a family would share cherished stories.
Celebration is rich, shared, and decadent.
The drinks are sipped
Hoping to spread the time for an eternity.
The evening goes on forever in the souls’ of the family.
Although they will never return to that time,
They will not need to-
Because this celebration becomes the stories of their time.
