A Poem for Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving happening later this month and with the focus this month on thinking about the positive things in our life… I figured a poem about the things I’m thankful for was appropriate.  I wrote it a couple weeks ago, but I’m posting it for the holiday.



For family and friends
Both near and far away
For birds in treetops high
That sing to greet the day

For things that scamper
Through fallen leaves
For things that swim
Within rivers and seas

For all our furry friends
That give us so much love
For sun and moon and stars
That shine down from above

For the snow and rains
That help the flowers grow
For the forests, fields and deserts
Wherever we call home

For all the good things
We have here on earth
For the unfailing grace
We’ve had from birth
