For what you are about to eat be thankful.
If you have spare change lying around in a jar and don’t have to spend it, be thankful.
If you have a roof over your head, however modest it may be, be thankful.
If you are gathered together with your family and everyone has shown up and you are all speaking lovingly or at least civilly to each other, be thankful.
If you all have your health, be thankful. If someone is ill but is getting appropriate medical care, be thankful.
If you can walk, talk, and use all of your God-given five senses, be thankful.
If your community has not been damaged by storms, floods, fire, chemical pollution, drought, or anything else that can cause the bonds of a community to weaken and break, be thankful.
If you are able to take the day off and have a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal, whatever that may be, then kick back and watch the games, or play the games, or do what you traditionally do, be thankful.
If on your day of worship when you choose to go, you can do so without taunts from your neighbors, be thankful.
If you are not a turkey, be thankful.
Be thankful, be thankful, be thankful, be thankful. And if your memory is good enough to realize the blessings you have BE THANKFUL!
God Bless. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving however and with whomever you may celebrate. And in some instances if you aren’t getting along with your family and have an excuse not to be with them, be thankful.
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Namaste. God bless. Attic Annie
