We are Grateful This Thanksgiving Day

We are Grateful This Thanksgiving Day

What is the American Thanksgiving Holiday all about? Is it just a four-day weekend for overeating and overindulging in sporting events? Or is there more to this peculiarly American Holiday?

I suggest there is much more to it than just food and football. It is a time to consider all that we have, however small or large it may be, with a humble and grateful heart. It is a time to express that gratitude in thought, word, and deed. It is a time to share with those you love and those who love you.

And so, in that spirit I share a short poem of gratitude written by me and a touching song, "Thanksgiving Prayer", which was written by Josef Anderson and performed by one of my favorite country singers, johnny Cash.
