giving thanks

much to give thanks for
each and every day
as today is the "official"
one on which to say

I will make a list
short as it may be
just to name two or three

of course family is top of the list
each individual cannot be missed

and food and home and clothes
and cars and recreation and
Heaven only knows

what all can be enumerated one by one
if we stop to take the time to
name each blessing-the list could weigh a ton

one long bike ride

another long ride
all in one day
makes for a pleasant
time to pass the way

we made one big loop
seventy-seven miles long
we were so much faster-
now don't get me wrong

our time improved
and we are glad
maybe next year
100 miles won't sound bad
