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!
