let the pilgrims and indians live together in peace and harmony

...not this pilgrim and Indian - more like cowboy and wild Indian in the Wild West!

 

This Thanksgiving holiday with its blessings so grand

Should serve to remind us of the joys at hand

The friendships we treasure, our families dear

The love we''ve been given and shared, year to year

The food at our tables, where many have none

The dawn of each morning beneath the bright sun

The dreams that we carry; the warmth in our hearts

That bring us together when we are apart.

  

The walks by the lakeshore as stars light the sky

The joys in the children who quickly pass by

The stillness of nature, the comforts of home

Each blessing the greatest that could ever be known

The warm, pleasured scents from the kitchen, delight

Arousing the senses near the firelight

The wondrous decor of the season to come

Good tidings, best wishes for everyone.

  

The freedom we hold, so to live peacefully

The soldiers who serve us, so diligently

The air that we breathe, the flowers we grow

The brightness of spring, the coldness of snow

Our sons and daughters, our husbands and wives

And the furry creatures who capture our lives –

All are blessings we’re given to cherish, always

Yet, especially so on Thanksgiving Day.

  

Celebrate this time for the beauty abound

Be thankful for all of the blessings you''ve found

For in the end, blessed you will truly be –

A soul filled with love, peace and harmony

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends; I am blessed, indeed

I am thankful for the love you have shared, selflessly

May each road that you travel be paved with a smile

Have a wonderful holiday....enjoyed in style!
