This time next week another Thanksgiving will have come and gone. Hard to believe. It will be time for the five-week “strict diet” challenge – before Christmas arrives:) Quite honestly, I’m having a hard time focusing on the blog. My brain just cannot seem to focus. I can only imagine how I will be on Thursday evening:) I’m not sure anyone really needs another post about dinner plans or thoughts encouraging us to be grateful (although I do enjoy reading them), but I did want to post today. So I will share a favorite Thanksgiving poem. I enjoy sharing verses, wisdom I’ve recently read, and even an occasional song lyric, but I do not often share poems. I used to really enjoy poetry – especially writing it – but have somehow gotten away from it. Random side note: I also have written a few songs but that truly was a lifetime ago. Today, I am much more about sharing others’ poetry or songs.
I know the holidays can be difficult. Can stir up all kinds of memories as well as emotions. With one son in Heaven, I totally appreciate that. But there are blessings even in the hard. Even in heartaches or other challenges. This poem reminds me of that truth. If you need that gentle reminder today, I hope this poem will encourage you. Happy Friday friends!
