Thankful for...

I am thankful for a warm bed to sleep in...
...and a roof over our heads.
I am thankful for the food that we put on our table, to sustain our bodies.
I am thankful for mother nature, who reminds me that we are not alone on this planet.
I am thankful for this earth, which provides for us a home filled with beauty.
I am thankful for my family, who remind me that life is good.
And my sisters, who understand me to my core.
I am thankful for my spouse, my best friend and better half.
I am thankful for the time I'd been given...
to spend with loved ones before they left our world.
Most of all, I am thankful for my children...
who humble me and remind me what life is like through a child's eyes.

Thanksgiving Prayer
 Iroquois Prayer, adapted 

We return thanks to our mother, the earth,
which sustains us.

We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.

We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.

We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.

We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.

Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in Whom is embodied all goodness, 

and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.

You win the prize for the best Thanksgiving post. I am going to copy that Iroquois prayer and keep it close. My goal for 2011 is to be handy like you. Ann
