Thanksgiving Day Wish

In less than 48 hours we will celebrate Thanksgiving, admidst total rancor of Blue and Red and the apparent failure of the SuperCommittee to reach a deal. Sadly these are issues beyond our control today; but sharing with friends and family are and a sense of gratitude to the bounty we and this nation have are. My Thanksgiving wish to all

Thanksgiving Wish
May the Autumn leaves in pastel beauty fall ever so slowly to the ground
Almost like a Pageant of the Masters--beauty in awe, knowing no bounds
To gently form on a windless day multicolored mounds
Where the sound of sated friends and family is the only sound
Where the main scent is turkey waiting to be carved
To a waiting group trying to pass off as being starved
No matter the chaos and the troubles this nation sadly faces
Look around the table and we seem to be still in God’s graces.
If today we are all Pilgrims cinching up belts and knowing why from Europe fled
There is no earthly force we cannot overcome, that we should ever dread
