Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving

Here is a poem that says it all!

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food and love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends,
For flowers that bloom about our feet,
For tender grass, so fresh so sweet,
For song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven we thank thee.

written by Ralph Waldo Emerson

To all my friends worldwide, have a grand day.

Hello Terra, What a beautiful poem, so heartfelt....we have so much to be thankful for. I think in this fast world now of everything, we have sometimes, lost the knack of seeing all we have. I grew up in the fifties when the only time we got anything was on birthdays or Christmas, and then it was scant few. Yet we appreciated every single thing. And took time to appreciate nature. Even a good feed was only at Christmas so the next day I was always sick. Our world of blessings have come a long way.
