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.
