gratitude: wonder doubled

"Piglet noticed that though he had a very small heart,
it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude."
-Winnie the Pooh

Thanksgiving. I love this season, this holiday, this special moment in life set apart to simply be thankful.  I love it so much I refuse to put Christmas decorations out until Friday, because as beautiful as the shimmer and lights are, I don't want to look past this day, this time to be overwhelmingly grateful: exactly what I feel.  Thank you, sweet Jesus, for my man, my babes, my people, the Northwest summers, writing, cold brew, and smiles.  You didn't have to give human kind smiles, but I'm so glad you did. Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.
