Turkey or Pork

By Sabrina Ruiz

Do you celebrate Thanksgiving?

Do you prefer Turkey or Pork?

Do you say grace or your blessings?

Do you say what you’re thankful for?

Beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes

Pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top

Bread and butter, more plates to go

Drinks, rice, Turkey or Pork, don’t stop

Eating to have a full belly

Surrounded by people you love

Salad, mac and cheese, and jelly

Turkey or Pork? Let's eat. All come.

What are you thankful for?

By Sabrina Ruiz

I’m thankful for the beautiful morning,

Where there’s a quiet solitude.

I'm thankful there’s no mourning

Where there’s no bad on the news.

I’m thankful for the drive to education

No accidents, injuries, or death.

I’m thankful for the days off and vacations

No work, anxiety, or stress.

I’m thankful to my friends and family

Bless them with every inch of my heart.

I’m thankful for the journey,

Where nothing will tear us apart.

I’m thankful for clothes and food,

Which is a struggle in this economy.

I’m thankful for all the good

Deeds, rewards, and problem solvings.

There’s plenty to be thankful for,

Jot a list and speak with your heart

My question to you, ask your brain to explore:

What are you Thankful for?
