Gather Together

Today you might have gathered together…

with friends and family…
around the dishes filled with good food…
dish1
You drank your fill as well…
dish2
Though you consumed so much food and drink…
it was still difficult to leave the table…
dish3
It took some self control to abandon the culinary delights…
dish4
Sometimes it would just be better if the table would leave you!
dish5
But then you would look at it forlornly…
and wish for its return…
dish6
Sometimes there is a price for all of our gluttony…
dish7
Disapproval and a curled lip…
a low growl…
a disdainful look…
dish8
There are still those of us who just don’t get it…
Stubbornness…
Willfulness…
Hard-headed-ness…
or
clueless…
Sometimes the lesson has to be a bit harder…
dish9
Sometimes it leaves us with a slobbery head…
and sore neck…
and makes us yelp all the way home.
But we should still remain thankful…
for lessons learned…
for tough love…
for mother’s concern…
and the sunshine’s warmth.
dish10
We need to remember…
family is what matters…
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
