Today is Thanksgiving.

A day we’re supposed to
Slow down.

To be thankful.

Lost in the trappings of a day
It’s easy to forgot that
Gratitude is a state –

Not an action.

It’s something we are,
Not something we do.

When we live in a grateful state
It shows in every action we take,
In every word we speak.

This morning as I lie in bed
Listening to the quiet
Before the day,

I remind myself…

Without gratitude,
Love withers away.
