Giving Thanks - Thanks Giving

With Gratitude,

wishing everyone

to experience that magical state

of just being

with their loved ones

or alone on their own.

The magical state where

nothing is elevated or exaggerated

nothing is hidden or pushed aside

fears do not outplay love

tears are not put under the rug

superficiality does not take over

same old stories do not have reruns

pauses are allowed

in order to breathe, to feel, to heal

recognizing what is

without solving

without judging

with care to self


with care to other

with all emotions accompanied

just being Present

to Life

to Love.
