{gratitude: 11.18}

Years ago, I saw a quilted wall-hanging made by Wendi Gratz embroidered with the words “Enough is as Good as a Feast.” That was ages ago, and the words are still something I want to write on my hand at least once a day. Enough – surfeit – is as good as a groaning table, full.

Quite a thought for people who struggle with being not enough. Quite a thought for those who overthink, overdo, overspend. Quite a thought to go into Thanksgiving with!

You Are

Ample – not stuffed.
“Full, thanks, so no more.”
This meal’s up to snuff,
No need for encore.
You’re good, like a feast,
Just right. On the nose.
So, rest in that peace
And settle, reposed.
