Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a holiday when we give thanks

For all we have

It’s not about the turkey,

Or the food that we will eat;

It’s about the world around us,

And the blessings we’ve received.

Think about the year that’s past;

All the people that you’ve met;

Some might be your best friends,

And some you will forget.

Be thankful for your findings

New people in your life!

Some people do not have a friend

And live a life of strife

Open your heart to strangers,

Share some time with them;

When your conversations over,

They will have a friend!

Now’s the time for family,

From near and from afar;

Let them know you love them,

No matter where they are.

Tell them you are thankful

And want them by your side;

So all your love and blessings

Could be greatly multiplied.

Share all of your stories;

Connect with them once more;

I’m sure each and every one

Has memories galore.

When the turkey’s ready and the stuffing overflows,

It’s time to stop the stories; to the kitchen you must go.

Enjoy a good and hearty meal;

Then chat with family and friends.

Enjoy your time together, for too soon it all will end.

.

Be thankful for the day you’ve shared,

Be grateful for the fun;

Be thankful for your family, each and every one.

Be grateful for our Lord above,

For blessing us with love;

And always thank’ our Holy One

For all he has done.

Happy Thanksgiving
