Thanksgiving Hangover (G-uno)

After all the shopping, cleaning, and cooking are done,

 we found ourselves entwined in togetherness.

Gathered at the table,

with our bellies full from all the carefully prepared dishes. 

Laughter filled the room as we recalled

all the moments that had filled our hearts with joy.

Some of the memories were bittersweet,

and some were now just precious memories

of Thanksgivings that have long since passed.

This is by far my favorite part,

where we make sure to bring along with us,

all those with whom we’ve had to part.

Once we have honored all who have gone,

I look around the room to see

all the wonderful ones who still belong.
