Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Cold winds are racing across the foothills on this fine Colorado day. The sky is a pale blue, and a white haze of clouds has crept over the mountains. Ron is working in the kitchen preparing a fabulous meal to commemorate the day. The holidays are hard for me each year, and as I get older, they seem harder to celebrate. Writing helps…

I chose the following words in reply to the prompt words of ‘beginning and thanks,’ for my Tanka this week: for beginning, I used, “set in motion,” and for thanks, I used “grace.”

Bleak lamentations –

bitter winds howling in grief,

autumn’s last hurrah.

Winter snows set in motion

my grace to begin anew.

I hope your day is filled with much love and happiness… and turkey too!

    1. Awww, Annette. Thanks. I sure am trying. The holidays are trying. I did change the old blog today… that Aries in me needed a change. Thanks for always making me feel better. ❤

    1. Thanks, Hugh. The holidays are still hard for me. We had a lovely turkey dinner and as usual, Ron did fabulous. ❤
