Every Day is Thanksgiving Day


On Sunday’s I’m posting poetry written by my mother-in-law, Bettie Lou. Writing poetry was a form of therapy after losing her husband and then her youngest son in 1985.

Every day is Thanksgiving Day

So much to be thankful for –

            So little to regret.

I give thanks for life itself.

            A touch from someone who loves me

            The joy I feel that is beyond my understanding

A burst of color across the western sky as a full moon rises in the east

Safe flights

Awareness of truth without knowledge

I have so much to be thankful for.
