1033 – I Hate Lima Beans

I Hate Lima Beans
Full disclosure: if you’re not going to eat those, I will.


Thankful for the holiday.
Thankful for the cheer.
Thankful for the family
and friends who’ve gathered here.

Thankful for the games we play
When we’re clustered near.
Thankful that we got to say
“Give thanks” for one more year.

Thankful for the ones who cooked.
Thankful for the feast.
Thankful for the piles of pies.
(I count fourteen at least!)

Thankful for Thanksgiving day
and for all it means.
Thankful, yes, for everything,
Except for Lima beans.
