Thanksgiving Plans

“Why do we have to celebrate this year?
We didn’t last year,” Miren grumbled, tossing
graphite sticks at the paper stack too near
a cheerful four year old, who sat browsing.
Ran’s ears were pricked for interesting talk.
“Why change? Why do you want to celebrate?”
“Because things are better,” Sarn broke off. Chalk
that up to change. He no longer berate
fate or himself for his failings; his son
was happy; his bro went to school and that
was enough to be thankful for. He’d won
some respect and he should celebrate that.
“Nolo invited us and we’re going.”
Miren glared but he didn’t keep arguing.

  1. I’m thankful for the people I’ve met this year and especially, in the last month. You guys have given me a new outlet of expression, in a fun way as well. I’m also thankful for new opportunities, since now the path is unknown for me, but I kind of feel like things could be good.

      1. You are welcome :). And I wish you the same as well. This has been a very awesome experience and I will, most definitely, continue it. It’s a part of me now, and I don’t think I can stop doing it. I will definitely organize myself to leave time to post. And share thoughts and also, drop in and read what is up 😉
