Living Gratitude

On this day of thanks, I can think of nothing better to say than to offer the words of my favorite poet, who lives gratitude without even trying.

Moon dancing on Vashon
Moon dancing on Vashon

When

When it’s over, it’s over, and we don’t know
any of us, what happens then.
So I try not to miss anything.
I think, my whole life, I have never missed
the full moon
or the slipper of its coming back.
Or a kiss.
Well, yes, especially a kiss.

– Mary Oliver, Swan
