Thanksgiving Challenge 2016 Thursday: Feasts of Giving

Updated on November 24, 2016

Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude for Abundance, Family, and Friends. During the Holiday season, we often think of our families or the lack of family and friends. How blessed is a person who has one at least to call family or friend? In the Spirit of Peace that ushers in the time of year, the following is a poem and the last entry into the Thanksgiving challenge of 2016.

Open up your hearts now and then to others who may not have active family and friends with whom to meet and revel in and be that to them in the end--family or a friend--adopted kin.

The Autumn of each blessed Time

The fa - mi - ly hearts meet to dine

Upon the cherished love Divine

We enjoy the Feasts of Giving

Faces shining full of wonder

Loving sounds echo like Thunder

Hugs from children Aunties plunder

Happens at the Feasts of Giving

Gratitude shown in circled prayer

Holding hands, Thanks for all who's there

Blessing food--amens everywhere

To begin the feats of Giving

Following feasts, we say farewell

Kissing kinsmen our hearts do swell

Our memories will never pale

Of the thoughts of feasts of Giving

This is the Final Hub in a seven-day Thanksgiving writing challenge I issued myself and other interested writers. The words of the day are Feasts of Giving. For the rules, look up Thanksgiving Challenge 2016

      Thanks, kbdresseman. I hope to be ready for the Christmas time. I realize that it is okay to challenge myself. I did not think it would be fun, but I enjoyed it. I think that if I had more time to write I would have done better, but I would have procrastinated it and finished maybe one.

      Bill, thanks. I do feel good. I felt driven to do it and more than what I normally do came out! I normally research for hours and days on what I want to write about, but I did not have time. I wrote a poem! I don't do poetry really anymore, but I did for the challenge.

      Thanks, Aesta1. I am glad I was able to make it. I wanted to give up on Thanksgiving day, but I figured it would not only make me look bad but become my standard of behavior--giving up when it gets hard. I think I need to do more challenges.
