Thankful Thoughts

This is a time for reflection and joy
Each year as we enter the holiday season
We reflect on things past and present
And we give thanks for many a reason.

We are thankful that we have those around us
Far too often we are missing a special one
We think of the good times, often to pause
Of things we shared, what we might have done.

But there are many reasons to get on with life
So we set the table and gather once more
We share all those happy stories and tales
Those born of family history, now lore.

Partake of the blessings of family and friends
Cherish the foods and the reasons to live
Remember those passed, pull close those still here
And pause together, remember, and Thanks give.
