My son is driving up through Georgia

visiting us for Thanksgiving


I know how tired he must be

We wait patiently for him


Hot chili is on the stove

As we wait, I feel calm inside


I want us to have a relaxing fun time

and I feel sure we will


We both face challenges in life

but I think the best thing we can do


this Thanksgiving

is to share love and laughter


talk things out, sure

but not lose touch with the joy


of just being together

on Thanksgiving, 2014


my son and I
