    [h=3][/h]I wanted to post this for you before life really gets hectic and we dont have time to chat anymore. Happy Thanksgiving!
    [h=3]A Thanksgiving Prayer[/h] For forests tall and oceans deep
    For canyons wide and mountains steep
    For sunset skies of pink and gold
    For every sunrise we behold For Winter's snow and springtime's thaw
    For Summer's warmth and Autumn's awe
    For roofs that keep the rain away
    For walls that hold it all at bay
    For work that puts food on the table
    For health and rest to keep us able
    For friends and family around us
    For years to come, may they surround us
    For soldiers fighting for our peace
    For days to come when wars may cease
    For hope, so burdens won't enslave us
    For thy forgiveness which will save us
    For feast, and those with whom we share it
    For loving hands that did prepare it
    For all that makes this life worth living
    We take this time on this Thanksgiving
    To bow our heads and bend a knee
    And pause to look around and see
    For all that was, is, and shall be
    We have none to thank, Oh Lord, but thee.

    Very nice. I'd like to add a "Thanksgiving wish" to this:

    For difficult children who're drama free
    And smoother sailing days for thee :)

    Printed this to bring to our huge thanksgiving. Our family has lots of extended family, those friends who have family far away, usually a few exchange students or stranded college kids all on this great day. My cousins daughter just married her love since highschool the beginning of Fall and we are so blessed he is home and safe from the war. This is very meaningful, thanks again dear one.

    LOL, my mom just read it and loved it .... BUT she said, we better just print it out and put it on the tables because you KNOW Q(and even a couple of other grands) is not gonna let us read all that with food around....

    Long talking moments sound like Charlie Brown's teacher to him, LOL
