For my U.S. friends, may your Thanksgiving Day, no matter how you celebrate it, connect you to your blessings and help you feel an attitude of gratitude. I shared this short poem last year and it seemed to resonate with some of you, so once again here is my Thanksgiving wish for you all.
Look Around the Room
The day is full, food and laughter,
music and games, richly laden tables
and flowing wine.
Before the day is gone, blessings
retired to the back of mind,
look around the room.
It is in the faces you see, hands
you grasp in love, that happiness
resides in the completeness of life.
Touch tenderly those who gather
this day, remind yourself that it is all
you need, you are rich
beyond your dreams.
