A Week of Thankfulness - The Blessing

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!
