cranking up


while your thanksgiving
is just cranking down
and you're fixing yourself some turkey sandwiches
between shopping trips,
we're busy getting our thanksgiving
cranked up.

the i'm thankful for paper chain was made tonight,


we read our
the very first thanksgiving
and
thanks for thanksgiving books,
and with the kids down to bed,
a husband just flying back into town
i am scurrying around
setting my table
and watching my pie crusts shrink!


but even so,
i'm thankful for a brand new oven
and to be a family together again!
a happy (belated) one to you.
