Thanksgiving

Another one has come.

Tomorrow it will be done.

When family comes,

together to eat,

and then leaves so abrupt.

Kids want to go,

to their friend's house,

as grown-ups go,

to black Friday stores and camp out.

What ever happened,

to simple traditions,

like playing football,

in the backyard?

Then you get,

cleaned up for dinner,

then watch more football.

It is not that I am mad.

I just do not understand,

why someone would leave,

their family and so much food.

If you ask me,

that is not being thankful.

That is just being rude.

    Thanks for this needed reminder on what being thankful is all about and not only for one special time but for every day.

        Makes me miss when holidays weren't so stressful and I could just sit and watch Charlie Brown. Now they're such a mess. I didn't even bother to stay and eat because I couldn't handle the family drama.... Ah, I miss being a kid and not knowing the drama, just knowing there was mashed potatoes and pie. The good stuff. Watching the parade on TV whilst it happens in New York... Gives me a nostalgic feeling almost.
