For every sacrificial cranberry, jellied or whole.
For warm butter & dinner glasses clinked in unison.
For every late cousin, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew & friend.
For every child told to “stop running” or “sit down.”
For every inedible rejected new potato salad recipe.
For every leftover that filled lunch boxes for weeks on end.
For every angry neighbor whose parking spots were taken.
For every ball game & lost bet placed under a table.
For every last minute run for cinnamon, nutmeg or milk.
For every vacant place at every table where grandmas, grandpas & loved ones used to sit.
For every rehearsed & spontaneous prayer before we carved.
Lord, I'm grateful... for Thanksgiving.
Nothing missing, nothing broken in our hearts.
Lord, we remember.
