Thanksgiving Restoration
“Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.”
— Henry Van Dyke


I am thankful for
my full belly after dinner,
shared with all my family,
finally together again
following quarantine decree.

I am thankful that
we survived the scourge
and lived to celebrate
another Thanksgiving
where traditions dominate.

I am thankful for
the smell of Grammy's turkey dressing,
the feel of all those hugs around the room,
and the glow on all these faces,
not achieved through lens of Zoom.
