I am thankful
Although it’s not really easy
and I don’t really have the time
but I appreciate so many of you
that I tried to make this rhyme.
For my husband who is my other half
he lets me sleep in on the weekend
buys me a snack every night
and kills spiders early in the am.
For my kids, one who just fell and broke his arm
but he doesn’t complain and is a joy
and a big help to his twin brothers
I try to remember that when I feel annoyed.
To my mom who’s fighting cancer
and struggling with a lot
but she’s my best friend so she’ll win
let’s not give stupid cancer another thought.
To my dad
who knows how to fix anything around
for being so strong for my mom and family
for smiling when he probably wants to frown.
For my brother who is a punk
just kidding he’s pretty neat
he’ll drop what he’s doing if you need help
in the time of a single heartbeat.
For Ally, Shannon, Katie,
Kelly, and Michael,
thanks for being my friend
even if I’m sometimes a handful.
For my in laws and cousins
and uncles and aunts
And anyone I forgot
I’m writing this quick, you still count!
So while your eating your turkey
I hope you stop and remember
that someone is thinking of you
on this Thursday in November.
Love you all. Happy Thanksgiving.
