Happy Thanksgiving!

 harvest_cornucopiea_mw

Once again Thanksgiving’s here!
Break out the giving and good cheer!
Warm the oven, bake the breads
Intertwine the family threads.

Gather closer one and all
Bow our heads, to heaven call:
“Bless us, Lord, we humbly pray
Bless our food on this Lord’s Day”

“Thank you for the love you’ve shown
May these blessings be your own.
Teach us in your tender way
To love and cherish every day.”

With eager eyes and Amen’s said,
With wafts of Mother’s homemade bread,
Gather ‘round from great to least
Enjoy this great Thanksgiving Feast!
