Happy Thanksgiving to All

For all…Thanksgiving
For the peace and promise of a sunrise.
The quickening of breath that comes when we take in the beauty of our surroundings.
For the mystery and humility of daring to see how we are all connected.
For the opportunity, over and over again, to choose joy.
For waking up every day to the unknown and the courage to walk into that day.
For loved ones and the trusted few for whom we dare to be truly seen.
For the ones we touch and those who touch us never knowing the grace exchanged.
For teachers and wise companions who shed light on our path.
For seasons of sun and rain and bountiful harvest.
For the reprieve of winter stillness.
For the wild ones with whom we share this earth, those we see and those we never will.
For the connection beyond words of beloved fur companions who purr and bound
and know when to sit upon or offer soft fur to lean against.
For giving and receiving.
For doors opened and walls broken down by the simple and spiraling depths of love.
For Belonging…
to ourselves, to one another, to the world
…Thanksgiving.
