Days of Thanksgiving

Oh these were lovely and brought back memories of when I used to plant these in Northern VA,
so bright and beautiful they were!
Good morning warriors
gentle spritit
as we near the days of
where turkeys are trotting
the grocerery stores are filled with
folks rushing to
lay claim on the most perfect bird and trimmings
for that special feast
in homes across our lands.
I’m being told
one should hurry to get to the store
not only are the turkey’s being “picked and plucked”
but the temperments of the shoppers
are being
“picked and plucked”
as well!
already we’ve been seeing the ads of
I wandered through the lobby of the hotel
looking for the gift shop to grab a
Postcard for the
Pulaski Health & Rehab
I fell into those most beautiful Trees!

You can send your postcards to the above,
perhaps they will just be delighted to see the sights
and be able to be entertained by stories into
Thanksgiving, Christmas and
As we rush, rumble, trot
it seems we keep forgetting to
embrace the moment
for just the day, the moment, the breath we take
and the very moment we are with each other
with ourselves
make the most of the day we’ve been given!
As we now are entering
this time of Thanksgiving
I hope you are finding ways
to enjoy it,
really enjoy it.
Finding time to embrace it for its meaning of
Perhaps you can do that prior to getting out of your car
at the grocery store
cos’ it seems once inside and getting one of those carts
“all bets are off”,
as kind folks just seem to
lose their minds
then take to the isles like Andretti
zoom all over each other without a smile, a kind word
Just imagine
while out there fighting over that bird
if you could take the time
to smile, to laugh, to relax
in yourself!
visualize all those turkeys just getting up from the section they are in
and running through the store and right out the front doors!
If that doesn’t bring a smile,
pull that cart over to the side for a moment or two
really watch the faces of those out there engaged in the shopping
remind yourself
you too are one of them!
Do you really intend to be that serious over
grocery shopping?
We’re in the Fall of 2011
before you know it
the holidays will be gone
Winter will be settled in of these dark months!
let the sun warm your face
with an attitude
for the day
for those that you love
those that love YOU
all that you are blessed to know
a time to be present in your lives
to be thankful
to be mindful
of all that has ever been
that is
hopefully all that is to come!
Prayers on the wind today for all who enter here
those precious folks
that need us to walk with them
along a journey that is sometimes
dark, sometimes scary
one that is walked easier with warriors beside them…
We are here;
we are warriors of gentle spirit
we are with you! 
As we express our gratitude, during this Thanksgiving and during each day,
it allows us to be mindful
it gives us the wonderful opportunity to experience
grace in being
for our
for our present
to be hopeful
for all that is to come
it allows us
“thank you”.
When I count my many many reasons to be thank-ful
I count the warriors of this page,
I am grateful
for each of you; your spirit, your kindness
because you are here.
Run Turkeys’ Run
it’s almost time!
