a thanksgiving prayer

A beautiful truth from the queen of thanks.

It is my prayer for all of us today, friends,
that we would pull up a chair right smack dab in the middle of our lives -
right here, right now -
prop our elbows on the table,
clasp our hands together,
and rest our heads low
as we get small and whisper our prayer big
to say
thank you God 
not for what I hope will happen
or for what I think I need
or for what I wish would change
but for what you have given me
right here, right now.
It is more than enough.

I am thankful for every single one of you today, and every day.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
