Alphabet Thanks

Every year, at Thanksgiving dinner,

my family passes a basket or a hat

around that festal table; and

we pick out a letter written on a

slip of paper.






We give thanks for something,

that starts with that letter:

sometimes trite or silly, but, still,

we are thankful.

Because thanks should encompass all of life—

alpha to omega, A to Z, in every way,

we have been showered with blessings.

And we should give thanks.
