thanksgiving

gratitude prayer by e. e. Cummings

i thank you god for  this most amazing day:

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees

and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;

this is the birthday of life and love and wings:

and of the gay great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginably You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Thanksgiving gives me a chance to reflect on the amazing gifts that I have been given.  Can’t even start to name them all.  Every day in November Bob’s sister, Shelley, has been sharing something different that she gives is grateful for.  I am so stealing that idea next year because I have enjoyed reading her thanks!

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!
