Happy Thanks Giving Day

For flowers that bloom about our feet;

For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

For song of bird, and hum of bee;

For all things fair we hear or see,

Father in heaven, we thank Thee!

Ralph Waldo Emerson
The First Thanksgiving

When the Pilgrims

first gathered together to share

with their Indian friends

in the mild autumn air,

they lifted the voices

in jubilant praise

for the bread on the table,

the berries and maize,

for field and for forest,

for turkey and deer,

for the bountiful crops

they were blessed with that year.

They were thankful for these

as they feasted away,

and as they were thankful

we're thankful today.


A lovely way to thank God for all our blessings.  Not celebrated in a big way outside US but I think we all have blessings that need a thank you. I know I certainly have.
So I say a big Thank You to all those of you that read my blog and also to those of you who leave such lovely comments.
Enjoy today!
