Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all…

Happy Thanksgiving Flowers

Grateful for each hand we hold
Gathered round this table.
From far and near we travel home,
Blessed that we are able.

Grateful for this sheltered place
With light in every window,
Saying “welcome, welcome, share this feast
Come in away from sorrow.”

Father, mother, daughter, son,
Neighbor, friend and friendless;
All together everyone in the gift of loving-kindness.

Grateful for what’s understood,
And all that is forgiven;
We try so hard to be good,
To lead a life worth living.

Father, mother, daughter, son,
Neighbor, friend, and friendless;
All together everyone, let grateful days be endless.

Grateful for each hand we hold
Gathered round this table.

(From Thanksgiving Song Lyrics – Mary Chapin Carpenter)

    Thank you for sharing this song, I had never heard it before….gasp! FYI….the reason for the switch on the computer, the PC broke and I had heard for years how great the Apple is for photographers, so I took the leap.
