Happy Thanksgiving

Flowers and fruits the table is set

China, nametags on our dinette

A time of sharing, being selfless

Love and caring in togetherness

A relative not seen in a year

Comes to visit and brings good cheer

Visiting with friends and family

Enjoying conversations so merrily


We’re thankful Lord to be gathered around

Another year, and we hope not snowbound

Children look forward to the snowflakes

But the older folks find it harder to break

When driving out in the cold, on icy roads

With other people making it a heavier load

We’ll have extra food if they do stay over

Thank you Lord for everything and even after


Remember to give daily thanks for all our blessings

Have a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving!
