Portrait Of Thanks

All of my life

I have witnessed thanks being given.

It has always been modeled.

From grace before meals,

To appreciation and respect for what we have.

I can close my eyes and see familiar faces

In profile

Or across from me,

And see the familiar pose of thanks.

In my world,

It is head bowed,

Hands clasped,

And thanks expressed.

My life is filled

With portraits of thankfulness.

Portrait of Thanks

Another day to give thanks.
