Happy Thanksgiving!

I am grateful for those moments
when words fail
when I am humbled
by the realization
that I don’t have all the answers.

I am grateful for every chance to say,
with honesty,
“I don’t know,”
because it welcomes
an opportunity to learn.

I am grateful for the hands and mouths and minds
that transform the tasks of word-work
into the wonders of word-play,
for days that end not in periods
or exclamation marks,
but with question marks,
or hopefully, with ellipses.

Most of all, 
I am grateful for a God 
who guides me toward
a greater understanding
of the extraordinary story 
at the heart
of every one of us.
