There are many languages in the world.
English, Cantonese, and Arabic to name just a few.
Also, there is the language of Love,
the language of Patience,
and the language of Thankfulness.
This weekend I am thinking of things
I am specifically thankful for.
What’s on your list?
I have the usual stuff …
But also electric lights and curling irons,
hot and cold running water on demand,
appliances that ease and expedite my life.
For moms and dads and cars that start.
For air conditioning and forced air heat.
I’m thankful that I live in America.
I can vote,
continue my education,
and go to stores or movies
without much fear of being
sold into slavery.
