A Day of Thanksgiving

A Day of Thanksgiving



A day of Thanksgiving and making amends

Where everyone's family and all of us friends


A day of abundance and such gratitude

Sharing and giving's the new attitude


A day for laughter and maybe a tear

As we remember those far and near


A day to tell stories and "Remember back when?"

Boy am I grateful I'm not a turkey hen


A day to wear stretch pants and that's no bull

As we eat in abundance and get over full


A day to say "Please" and "Thank You", and rest

Let's praise the cooks for doing their best


A day to be Grateful for all that you've found

Just open your eyes and look around


A day to give thanks but also to pause

And pray for Peace, a much needed cause


A day to bow heads and Thank God above

Blessings to all as we share with great Love


A day of Thanksgiving we can all be a part

With an attitude of gratitude from the heart

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Nina!
That is so beautiful and also I had smiled a few times. Especially when you said.. "a time to praise the cooks". You know what?.. It is so important to do that, as preparing a Thanksgiving feast is such a giving effort in itself!
Thank you for reminding me too.
Happy Thanksgiving!!
