A Day for Thanks

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for
My family, near and far,
My friends, old and new,
My health, and the health of those I love,
My home, and the food we have to eat,
My country, and the freedoms we enjoy.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for
The wonderful gift of every new day.

Best wishes to you and yours for a happy Thanksgiving Day!

  1. Shelley, hope yours was a special Thanksgiving, too! We do have so much to be thankful for!

  2. Thank you, Shelley. For the poem and the group picture. A peaceful, full-hearted time.
