Giving Thanks Before the Holiday

Publish date:

Here in the United States, we're getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday. I'm going to be out of the office with both my sons until Monday, so I'm not sure if I'll be making any posts until then.

While I try to remain thankful throughout the year, this holiday gives me an extra reason to think about everything for which I'm thankful. For instance, I'm thankful for the acceptances my poems have received this year from editors. Of course, I'm very, very thankful for the opportunity to participate in this poetry blog--just as I'm thankful for all the great people who've read, commented, and linked to this blog. It truly amazes me just how fortunate I am, as well as what a great year 2007 has been (and continues to be).

Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving in the States or pushing through another workweek outside of them, I hope everyone has a happy and safe week filled with many poetic thoughts, musings, etc.

Now, if you excuse me, I need to get back to dreaming of chicken dumplings, vegetable trays, pies, and turkey. Mmmmmm...
